Feb 3 Update – Water main breaks

The second water main break of the weekend was patched by Mid City plumbing and all homes restored to service by 1pm on Saturday. Fortunately there were no further breaks or leaks.

While dealing with these breaks, we discovered the compressor that maintains air pressure in our storage tank had stopped working. Pressure was restored by Saturday afternoon and a permanent replacement compressor is now in place.

The water mains are showing significant corrosion, and this causes ruptures such as the ones experienced this weekend. Given these problems, the board is going to evaluate the costs and benefits of beginning to replace sections of mains. This important topic will discussed at upcoming board meetings. We invite concerned residents who wish to have input in this area to attend and consider joining the board.
