College Park - Your Decrepit Water Pipes at Work

Our 2 inch leaky waterlines in the city do not transport the same sparkling, fresh and chlorinated water from the water plant to our faucets. The city must periodically, seems like weekly or more often, flush the hydrants to increase the chlorine to acceptable levels. This wasteful practice is necessary to prevent us from having to boil our water before using it. We, in College Park, happen to be in the area of the city farthest from the water plant and at a dead end in the system. This is something that the LW2020 program plans to address.
