2 miles of new iron high-pressure pipe, manufactured by Austrian firm Tiroler Rohre GmbH, were laid during the summer, replacing old steel pipes that had rusted. A new 600 horsepower pump was also added, completing phase one of the project and adding a 15% increase in capacity.
Dana Bullen, President and General Manager, said at the time: “It’s a game changer.
