The Knightsville Town Council met Tuesday for its monthly meeting and was informed on the findings of a recent water leak survey.
The survey was performed by M.E. Simpson, Valparaiso, Ind., and according to Knightsville Water Superintendent Linda Minnick the findings were somewhat startling.
Minnick said 14 leaks were found -- three being substantial in size -- and it amounted to 92,160-gallons of water loss per day.
The purpose of the survey -- which took place toward the end of July and took approximately four days -- was to determine exactly what needed to be done before the Knightsville water system improvement project is started. The council said it believed the survey accomplished its goal and will certainly help with the project.
The next step will be to incorporate the findings of the survey into the engineering plans to continue the water system improvement project moving forward.
The Knightsville Town Council meets regularly the second Tuesday of every month, at 7 p.m., in the Knightsville Community Center.
