An Ohio county had a high water bill, but not enough water to show for it.
Franklin County officials in Ohio believe they have finally stopped a water leak that has caused the loss of million of gallons of water over the last few years, The Columbus Dispatch reported.
The county found out last year that it couldn't locate 66 million gallons of water that it from Columbus every three months. Officials said this could have been happening for fiver year or more, the source reported.
Stephen Renner, director of the county's Department of Sanitary Engineering, told the source that a 15 percent loss of water is normal, but last year's loss was nearly 55 percent.
Leak detection companies were able to identify the leaks and have plugged them for the meantime until further action can be taken, the source reported.
Another water leak has one San Antonio woman upset. San Antonio Water System customers were recently asked to conserve water. Lola Frederick was abiding by the suggestions, but a water leak sprung up in her front lawn, the NBC affiliate WOAI New reported.
“I don't want it wasted; I want it stopped from out of my house too, I just want it to go away," Lola told the source.
These leaks typically take a week to be serviced, but since gaining media attention, a SAWS spokesperson said she would receive a rush order for the fix.
