[ARCHIVED] Downtown Water Leaks

Downtown Water Leaks

So why all the downtown water leaks? Two main reasons, it’s the oldest pipe in town (much of it 100+ yrs) it’s also at the highest pressure due to the proximity to the water plant pumps. The good news is we are gradually fortifying the weak areas.

Believe it or not, the number of water leaks in El Dorado have actually dropped in half the last 10 years. Unfortunately, the leaks we do have all seem to be in the downtown area. Coming soon... repairing a slow leak at Vine & Central.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this water main break or other water quality questions, please contact Public Utilities at 316-322-4411.
