Peru needs to repair two wells

Posted by wlpo on August 25, 2010

Turn on your tap water in Peru and the water should be flowing even though two of the city’s nine wells are down.

Fixing the wells won’t be cheap.  It’s estimated to cost between $107,000 and $116,000 to pull and replace one pump.

At another well, it’s unclear how much it will total since they’re not sure what needs to be repaired.  Just pulling the pump out could cost up to $10,000.

One well is on the south side of town and the other on the north side.  They’re hoping to have them back online as soon as possible.
