The City of Trenton Battles Aging Water Pipes
Published February 13th, 2014
The city of Trenton is battling the water pipes in the ground beneath them.
And the battle is far from over as more cold weather is expected.
Over the past three weeks, Trenton has had close up to a dozen water leaks, several of them being major.
On top of that, they've had two major sewage back-ups and two lift stations go down.
It's a problem that officials say money can fix, money the city doesn't have.
"At the time when we need the most money,there's the least amount of money to go around. So it's a challenge and we're all working towards finding the right solution. But it's not going to be painless," said Taylor Brown, City Manager.
Trenton did receive assistance.
Gilchrist county, Chiefland and the Florida Rural Water Association all pitched in to help the repair efforts and to test the water.
