As I noted in my earlier blog about our Infrastructure Report Card, our underground pipes are getting old and breaking down.  The Water is Life site has a copy of a recent AP Article about our breaking water lines and the billions of gallons of water lost–not to mention the damage to roadways and buildings. 

Replacing old lines is costly but will become more critical as time goes by.  Nobody wants to hear about rate increases, but we have to keep our water lines intact to protect our water supply.
