Water fix in works

With the main distribution pump at the Lockport water plant undergoing needed repairs this week, city officials said they’re now looking at arranging rehabilitation work on another, nearby pump.

According to Mike Marino of Nussbaumer & Clark Engineering, the city’s engineering consultant, Town of Lockport-based Moley Magnetics has dug down about 25 feet and reached the damaged main water distribution pump that’s buried under the plant. The pump is the main one in a five-pump system designed to distribute fresh water throughout the city.

“The contractor has taken pump materials off site and is rehabbing the can and will take the pump apart. It looks like something they can rebuild,” Marino told the Common Council on Wednesday.
