“I understand that most people don’t care what makes a watch work, they just want it to tell time. ”At a news conference Monday, the mayor said the city is making repairs to broken lines and slowly resuming water pressure from the O. B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant that was damaged by the extended cold last week. Nearly 25 water main breaks have been reported and businesses like car washes are still operating. “That is the challenge that continues to take place as we are trying to fill up tanks, consumption is still happening,” Lumumba said.
