Water main leak repaired in hours

CLEAR SPRING - A repaired water main leak will save Clear Spring thousands of gallons in lost water, Vice Mayor Julianna M. Albowicz said.


The leak was discovered last month in the area of 130 Cumberland St.

"It's a main source of water for everyone," Albowicz said.

Within a few hours, work crews repaired the line that supplies water to all the town's water customers, Albowicz said.

Town Clerk Juanita K. Grimm said the town recorded 168,000 gallons of water consumption during the leak. After the leak was repaired, recorded water usage dropped to 79,000 gallons a day.

Savings bond awarded to student

The Clear Spring Town Council awarded a $50 savings bond to Clear Spring High School junior David Ernst.

"We recognize outstanding students nominated by their teachers for each grading period," said Vice Mayor Julianna M. Albowicz.

High school students from each grade level are nominated by their teachers based on their academic and civic accomplishments. Ernst is now eligible to compete for an annual $500 scholarship awarded by the Town Council each year to a Clear Spring High School senior.
