BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Berkeley Springs Water Works, the town-owned water department, will be purchasing a new pump for the department, and some additional work is needed on the check valves, Town of Bath Mayor Susan J. Webster said at Tuesday night's council meeting.
The estimated cost for the pump is $25,000, and the seals on the check valves are to be redesigned at an estimated cost of $30,000, she said.
In addition, the estimated cost to replace the leaking water pipes outside the town limits is about $3 million, Councilwoman Nancy Harvey said.
About 21,000 feet of pipe will be replaced, Webster said.
Councilman David Crosby, who chairs the Finance committee and is a Water committee member, said improvements are needed at the water department plant.
