There is a massive leak somewhere in the Phoenicia water system and so far no one has been able to find it.
That was the word from Alfred Peavy Monday night, when he addressed the Shandaken Town Board on the matter.
Peavy, the chairman of the Phoenicia Water Board, said they are bringing in help today, Wednesday, Aug. 3 to locate the problem.
And help could not come a moment too soon.
“We’re working on trying to figure out where the missing water is going,” Peavy said. “We’re apparently losing 60 percent of what we pump.”
