PERRYSBURG - The town of Perrysburg had another major water leak, Water Superintendent Robin Clark announced at the monthly meeting.
The town was losing 30,000 gallons. Clark and his department could not find the leak but once located, it was an easy fix.
"A bushing at the top valve had to be replaced," Clark said.
Once that problem was fixed, Clark said the department was working on getting the reservoir levels back up where they needed to be when they found out the chlorinator broke. Due to the damage, 500,000 gallons had to be emptied and pumped out.
"The water (department) and time they put in over the weekend, we certainly appreciate it," Supervisor Dennis Stopen said.
The town also received an update on water projects. Mark Alianello, engineer working for the town, provided the updates.
The major update Alianello discussed was the separation of bids for the water treatment plant due to the Wicks Law. This law says that any project over $500,000 has to be bid separately for plumbing, heating and electrical contracts. According to Alianello, this project could add 30 percent administrative costs to the overall project.
"It will be a pain in the butt for us but for the project it shouldn't be too bad," Alianello said.
It was also announced at the meeting that anyone who has pictures of the Wardtown School is asked to contact Jody Shaw of the Perrysburg Historical Society at 532-1558.
