Ridgeley Hit With Big Water Bill From Cumberland

November 24th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Infiltration from a manhole has contributed to an extraordinarily large sewer bill for the Town of Ridgeley to the City of Cumberland. Officials recently noted that Cumberland is working on an issue with its flood gates concerning the storm water infiltration, but that an adjacent manhole is also a culprit. To mitigate the manhole will cost the town an estimated $2,700 as it is relined and sealed to prevent infiltration, but water and sewer commissioner Duke Lantz says that it will save the town money in the long run.
