New Waterford Councilman Tom Cresanto inspects a portion of a pitted and broken 6-inch water main after Tuesday’s meeting. Utility department crewmen cut it from the ground during a series of six water line breaks they had to fix during the past few weeks. Village Administrator Jason Gorby estimated the pipe was placed in the ground in the 1960s. Cresanto said, “This is what’s eating away at our lines.” The pipe was taken from the post office alley and has large holes at each end where pitting ate through the metal. The village is currently replacing its old water lines with a new multi-million dollar distribution system. Gorby said this is why the village is replacing the lines.
