Bourbon Water Superintendent Updates Town Board

March 14, 2019

Bourbon Water Tower_1Steve Stacy, Water and Wastewater Superintendent for the Town of Bourbon briefed members of the Bourbon Town Board on the results of a ACCU-Dig camera test.   Stacy said, “It showed a lot of bad pipes and a lot of good pipes.”  He requested the purchase of two router heads at a cost of $660 and $800 to help clear grease and roots. The board voted 3-0 in approval. Stacy also reported that a lift station pump needs immediate repair or replacement. He indicated that he had already contacted the company that overhauls the town’s pumps.

The board approved $400 for wastewater certification training for employee Steve Walsh. Once completed, Walsh will be eligible to test for licensing.

Although no action was taken, Stacy said they continue to have water loss. He said they believe the problems are due to the current water meters in use and suggested that the 700 meters be replaced at some point. Although no quotes have been secured, Stacy said the cost could be over $210,000. He indicated that he would be searching for any possible grants to help defray the cost.
