40 Years of Leakage


Long term leakage such as this is possible because underground leakage will follow the path of least resistance. This means that a sewer line, an abandoned main, rock fill, or a drainage tile leading to a pond will accept the water preventing it from surfacing in the street where it would be noticed and then repaired.

The ten gallon per minute leak accounted for 5.25 million gallons of water per year. This adds up to  210,000,000 gallons over 40 years. Watch the feeding the fish movie.
