During a recent expansion project, city workers discovered two pipelines that were leaking and had severely deteriorated.
Due to the location, age, and condition of the pipes ... city staffers say there's an urgent need to replace them.
The pipelines are located at the "61 plant" -- which is out of service while the contractor works on other parts of the project ... so city staffers say now is the best time to replace the lines.
City staffers are also recommending constructing a facility to control some corrosion -- which has caused problems with microfiltration.
Both projects together will cost about 300- thousand dollars and will add 60 days to the project.
The money will come from water bond funds.
