WESTON Weston has restored normal water service to its 300-plus city customers after a mudslide ripped out a section of the main water line Saturday, July 28.
The city flowed water at low pressure to its customers from the Smith Frozen Foods, Inc. well until the repairs were made. The mudslide was caused by a leaking 14 inch Smith Frozen Foods, Inc. pipe.
According to Weston Police Sgt. Joshua Henningsen, the water pipes were installed about 40 years ago. There are an estimated 13,000 feet of pipe on the main line with over 760 fittings. During the summer, daily water flow through the system is approximately 200,000 gallons.
