The large square metal cover for the water works at the crosswalk from 4th and Piedmont on the Juniper Street side is usually always raised. Many senior citizens use this location to walk to Publix, and several have walkers. Two residents are visually impaired.. They can trip on this cover, or get their walkers caught in it. Why can't the water company replace this cover properly after their repairs. This has been a problem for several years now. This is a definite hazard.
