On Tuesday's edition of Brewing Issues, News 10's Gary Arnold sat with Jeanerette Mayor Tim deClouet to discuss improvements to the city's water quality system. Workers are replacing some troublesome old clay pipes that have been underground for about a half century.
"Busted lines, fresh water just flowing and just losing a good quality of water, just losing water quite a bit throughout the whole community." said deClouet.
The current clay pipes are being replaced with new galvanized water lines. The mayor says the project costs about $2 million and should be completed in about a year. It will provide better water quality and pressure for each residence.
