What is the current condition of our water infrastructure?

Unfortunately, like many systems in the state and across the country, our infrastructure is aging, and many critical elements are rapidly approaching the end of useful life. The system is much like an older home with a heaving foundation - investment is necessary before the problems spread and damage other parts of the house.

Evidence of our aging water system can be seen in the occasional main breaks that cause service disruptions.
