And because I'm waiting lbr a phone call from K-State about Harle) : I don't want to ne up my phone calling around for news. But I do have some impor- tant news! There was an emergency meeting of the village board last night to dis- cuss the leak in the water tower. Bob " 'S Bencken said it s a "drip, actually a little lnore than that." The problem is a design flaw. apparently m water tow- ers built between 1979 and 1985: ours was built in 1983. There is a brass expansion joint similar to a ball and socket joint that is supposed to allow tile tower to flex with the wind. Rust has gotten in be- tween the two parts of the joint, so the tower couldn't move any more as de- signed. Well. something had to move with the winds we've been having, the result was a break in one of the welds. Water pressure has been lowered in the water tower to keep the break from getting any worse, while awaiting a decision on repairs. If you' ve noti ted your shower i sn"t as invigorating as usual, or your wash- ing machine takes longer to fill. that's why. Maguire Iron has given a rough estimate of the cost of repairs, but a formal bid has not been received yet. Repairs and upgrading tile defec- tive expansion joint is estimated at about $10.0000 to $12.000. Time for the repairs includes drainin,, the tower and then hlhng .t back up after several tests to ensure water quality meets stan- dards: this is expected to take about a week. Chip Ohmstcde and Bob Bencken said the pump that keeps the water tower filled will (probably) be able to keep pressure adequ.ate in the city lines lk)r everything except the fire hydrants! Reassuringly, the [:ire trucks are al- ways kept filled and Lawrenc'e has a 3,000 gallon tanker they could send if we needed it: so does Red Cloud. Randy Hellbush [or tim Rural Wa- ter" As'sociation of Nebraska will come and help assess the situation to deter- mine if we need an auxiliary pressure i tank for the duration of repairs. Tanks are available for rent if we need. The Senior Center is planning to put up their Christmas decorations again this year.
