LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Last year's Carpenter One wildfire consumed more than burn 28,000 acres.
The wildfire destroyed the community's 50-year-old waterline, but the community was told it could cost upwards of $6 million to repair.
One year later, Trout Canyon residents are still waiting for change and feel like a forgotten community.
Over the past few weeks they have watched Gov. Brian Sandoval and a host of local and national politicians tour flood damage on Mount Charleston and promise help and money.
However, their burn area hasn't seen any visits or been made any promises, with a $3 million grant to get water running. In fact, absolutely nothing has been done since last year's fire.
All that remains of the pipe that connected this small community to a spring three miles away is still laying in pieces. But that pipe, welded together 60 years ago, is considered private property and the government claims it is not responsible for repairs.
The residents can't afford to repair it either. Some have set up a non-profit in the hopes of applying for grant money, but even they admit it's going to take serious financial help to get water back.
Right now some 50 residents are paying monthly for access to a neighbors' well, but that agreement only lasts until October.
They have made some headway with a grant from the USDA, but that would only give them $75,000 towards the $3 million repair bill.
