CLEAR SPRING - The town's new water storage tank has passed its electrical, plumbing and final building inspections, according to Councilman Steve Blickenstaff.

While voluntary water conservation practices are still in effect, Town Clerk Juanita Grimm said water usage is up.

Two serious leaks - one on Brennan Drive and another along U.S. 40 - were identified and fixed recently, Grimm said.

It also was reported at Monday's meeting that installation of water meters is nearing completion throughout the town and to water customers living beyond town limits.

"Work on the meters along U.S. 40 west of town is completed along with Boyd Road, Brennan Drive and Nesbitt Avenue," Mayor Paul Hose Jr. said.

Some aging meters need to be replaced and there are still some new installations needed on South Martin Street starting at St. Michael's Catholic Church.

Once all water customers are on water meters, Grimm said the town will be able to follow other municipalities that charge water customers so much for the first 6,000 gallons and then additionally per 1,000 gallons used.
