A large leak in a water line at the city’s water treatment plant has left water department staff, its engineer and a contractor scrambling to try to figure out how to repair it.
The leak at the plant, which is about a quarter mile from the Montezuma post office, was initially discovered last Tuesday. The city’s latest estimates are that the line had been losing about 110 gallons of water a minute — 30 gallons more a minute than the leak on the old Medite line that was finally repaired in September.
