One of the main challenges Water Distribution faces is the maintenance and replacement of cast iron water pipe 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 pipe made of fiberglass or plastic.
Another area the department is responsible for keeping in good working order is water valves. If a valve is not in working properly when there is a water break the water main cannot be
isolated and repairs made in a timely fashion.
