Ruptured Water Main

Rusty Pipe


BIG CHALLENGES

One of the main challenges Water Distribution faces is the maintenance and replacement of cast iron water pipes used in the 1930's and later years to establish the City's water system.  Cast iron eventually rusts which causes breaks in the supply system.  The department replaces the old lines with pipes made of fiberglass or plastic.


VALVE REPAIR

Another area the department is responsible for keeping in good working order is water valves.  If a valve is not working properly when there is a water break the water main can not be isolated and repairs made in a timely fashion.
