City of Colbert watching water levels

COLBERT - Colbert residents are being asked to control water usage because city officials said they found out the water levels have fallen.

Officials say the water level is now back up to 52 feet. The tower is 100 feet. Normal level is 98.

City officials were out all day Monday looking for a possible leak.

They say there are no contamination problems to worry about.

A new pump should be sent to the city overnight by mail.

In the meantime, officials are urging people to use caution and cut back on water usage.

    Gee if they can send the pump through the mail, perhaps they should consider installing a slightly larger pump.

    There is a leak on South Franklin that has been there over 3 months, water running right down the hill. They know it, but have they fixed it? NO. I grant that it is not a major leak, at least what you can see, but a leak and a waste none the less.

    It seems that we had this type of problem last year, and it seems that the pumps were blamed then to (and not to forget the old director).

    Understood exactly Q. It is kinda hard to blame this water issue on the drought, they might yet.

    To think that keeping an extra pump on hand would be too simple, how about picking up the stray dogs that every citizen is billed 75 cents each month. It doesn't have to be complex to be over the heads of a couple of council people.

    See what happens when attention is not paid to the infrastructure? I wish the council would take care of important issues around town instead of their fighting. It makes you wonder why such a vital pieces, such as a pump, are not kept on hand for quick replacement instead of having to order. To simple I guess.
