HARRODSBURG - The water tank at the end of Main Street has sprung a leak and needs fixing.
That is what the divers from Bulldog Diving Inc. will do: put on an emergency patch that city leaders hope will hold until a new water tower goes on line.
The hole in the tank is on the bottom, thereby quashing the idea that someone shot a hole in it, says Robert Norman, water treatment plant superintendent. "We're fairly certain it wasn't shot," he said. A shooter would have had to stand under the tank to place a shot where the leak is, Norman said.
The water comes out from the 750,000 gallon tank in a light spray.
The grass in the fenced-in area of the tank may be some of the greenest in Mercer County. It shows no sign of a drought. There is a puddle of water at the base of one of the tank's stanchions.
