A potable water fill station in the west Broadway area, that has been damaged for a month is being repaired in the upcoming weeks. While officials state this water is not meant to be used for drinking purposes, many persons in the area use potable water as an important resource. The system currently in place is very antiquated, and difficult to find parts for repair for anymore. The new system being put in place will allow for better ease of access for customers, and more remote services for representatives. The improvements are expected to cost $75,000 and will be paid for with water department revenue.
- Operating the potable fill as it is would be impractical since it is such an antique system.
- The fill station generates revenue for the water department and does not cost tax payer dollars.
- A simple design, the station only requires a couple of portal openings, with a card reader for general user purchases and a keypad for company accounts.
