Water System Developments – Spring 2023

New valves have been installed on the main water distribution line at Wagontire and Homestead Drives. These valves allow for more isolated shut offs closer to the site of a leak or repair, inconveniencing fewer members with water outages when problems arise.  Less water is lost as well. A valve on Horizon Lane, one going west to Dole Road, and one controlling the main line spur to homes further east on Clarks Branch and Richardson Roads were excavated and tested. All are now operational.

The plan to have a 150,000 gallon new water storage tank is ongoing. Power lines too near the physical site of the tank will have to be repositioned for safety concerns. The incredible inflation we are all experiencing is also creating havoc. Hopefully, these issues can be mitigated somewhat and work can continue on the project beneficial to all CBWA members.

Once the weather warms a bit and the ground is drier, please keep an eye out for any abnormal signs of water. Any marshy and overly wet areas are primary suspects for leaks. Our system is over fifty years old, and more and more issues with leaks and breaks will manifest.
