The City of Hartford has continually faced issues with their water department. At a meeting held on June 17, members of the city council heard from city employee Rich Galyen just how bad it is.

“It is a nightmare,” said Galyen. “With the old water line system and the water loss, it’s bad.”

According to Galyen, the city never received a map of the final water line system from contractors due to a disagreement with the city. Therefore, making the job near impossible to locate the source of the massive water loss.

The city is loosing more water than is being used. The loss is just over fifty percent, or one million gallons of water in just one month.

“We talk about this a lot, but finding the problem really should be our first priority,” said City Recorder/Treasurer, Judy Adair. Galyen said he will continue working towards locating and addressing the water loss.
