A city councilman said the leakages from the city’s Peterson reservoir are significant and that fixing such problems could help improve the city’s water situation.
Councilman Andrew Feldman, who focuses on water issues, said that up to a quarter of the water taken off the Gallinas River is lost to leakage at Peterson reservoir. Additionally, silting in the Peterson and Bradner reservoirs has reduced the holding capacity of the reservoirs by 30 percent, he said. As such, both need to be dredged, he said.
