BOONSBORO - Boonsboro's reservoir is slowly returning to normal levels after losing about 45 inches following a water main break last week, a town maintenance official said Sunday.
David Baker, superintendent of the town's water and sewer system, said the reservoir - 19 feet, 6 inches at capacity - stood at 17.8 feet Sunday afternoon.
"The reservoir is coming back slowly. These hot days don't help, but it's coming back," he said.
The water level started to drop last Monday when an 8-inch water main underneath Md. 34 between Boonsboro and Keedysville broke. The leak was not discovered until the following morning.
