East Side Water Department Manager Terry McGinister presented the council a detailed report on action the department is taking on several projects.
“Right now we have one pump that is in the shop now that is being repaired which leaves only one pump on Hickory Hill,” reported McGinister. According to McGinister, it will take 6 to 8 weeks to get that pump fixed, until then, "We are hoping and praying that that pump doesn't go out."
West side Water Department manager Ken Fratesi also presented the council with a report detailing the need to repair and make improvements to the existing million-gallon steel ground water tank located at the end of Ridge Drive in West Helena.
