There was a water main break that was discovered in January on Shore Drive SW, behind Behme’s Market. The line was at a depth of 6’ and was difficult to find and repair.  A lot of the PVC and the connectors had to be replaced and several tons of rock had to be poured on top, so the expense was more than expected.
