Source of Water Losses Discovered

City officials in Cumberland believe they have found a major reason behind the city’s massive water losses. A major leak was located Friday on the southern bank of Cumberland River right behind city hall. Last week, the Enterprise reported on the major problems that Cumberland has with its water system. A report presented by the mayor indicated that during the first half of 2011 the city was losing two-thirds of the water it was producing. The report pointed to water leaks as the main factor behind the losses.
