Three options were explained: 1) Preferred; encompass, abandon and remove with 1,200-feet of new pipe. Cost estimate $500,000. This option has been turned in for a grant application
2) Abandon and replace 300-feet of new line, using 6", 10" and 6" pipe costing less than $125,000.
3) Shut off valve and hope 6-inch can sustain the pressure with no cost up front and no new line. This could cause multiple leaks.
The City is checking with contractors and getting dates and hopes for an answer next week.
The City posted notices on doors for no outside watering for one week, due to overuse and the main well needing to recuperate.
