Lincoln City City Manager David Hawker offered some very pleasant good news to his city council Monday night. He said the city has managed to find an additional 14% water for the town, and it didn’t cost the city hardly anything to get it.
Hawker said the town’s “water leak detection” program has been turning up some big water wasting leaks. Hawker said that public works crews recently found a great big one. One that was wasting millions of gallons which, beyond wasting water, was driving up operating costs at the city’s water treatment plant.
Hawker said he hopes to have more good news on their efforts to stop water leaks all over Lincoln City. He said they have found another major league leaker. However, says Hawker, it’s been a bit challenging – but he has faith that city crews will pull it off.
