The good news is that Beiseker Public Works has found some more water leaks! The bad news is that Beiseker Public Works has found some more water leaks! Huh?
Bill and his crew have found more holes and cracks in the water pipes under village streets. Water which the village purchased has been leaking out of those holes into the ground. We didn't get paid back for that water because it didn't go through a water meter!
Once found, the offending piece of pipe can be removed and replaced. That means less of our expensive water will flow out into the ground. That's the good news.
These water breaks are expensive and time consuming to repair, especially in the winter. And the amount of purchased water hasn't dropped that much since we began fixing the holes. We've got to get those expensive new water meters installed a.s.a.p. so that we accurately account for all the water used in the village. That's the bad news.
Have a good weekend!
