The Hecla Water Association has been studying the recently acquired Lawrence Water Corporation. We have identified many areas in the system that would benefit from repairs and upgrades. Hecla is working with the United States Department of Agriculture for funding of the project. The Association has been doing a meter assessment since early spring, also many leak detection meters have been installed. Recently Hecla has been regulating the pressure in the system to reduce the number of line blow outs. Major system upgrades that are being planned for this fall should wrap up in the spring of 2016.
The Ohio Utilities Protection Service requires contractors and private citizens to call or click on their website 48 hours before digging. All utilities are notified of the digging location. Disregard of this state law causes water outages in some areas. It may also cause damages to be paid by the responsible party.
