The Leak on Hot Springs Road is no Longer!

As some of you may already know, the leak has been stopped! It’s actually been about 10 days since the work was done and and as you’ll see if you’re in town we still have a couple markers out on the road. By the way, this was the 7th repair we’ve made in the last year or so. Ouch!

Kudos to our intrepid crew for keeping things flowing.

This “sleeve” was installed in order to seal the leak. We then left the hole open for short period of time to ensure there was no more water coming from the pipe. It was then filled with “fill.” Go figure!

We’ll give it awhile for the traffic, and nature, to tamp things down a bit and then later this summer the pavement will be repaired.

On a related note, we’ve signed the planning grant agreement and are cautiously optimistic that we’ll soon be able to move forward with the planning phase of our “replacement project.” See some of our previous posts for more info. on that if you’re so inclined.

So, given time, repairs of this type will no longer be needed as our aging infrastructure will also be NO LONGER.

In the meantime, a note of thanks to all of you for doing your part and being water responsible!
