KODIAK - The city of Kodiak is down to half of its usual fresh water pumping capacity.
A mechanical problem last week at one of four pumps that carry fresh water to Kodiak residents put the dent in pumping capacity.
One pump was already out for repairs when a second pump failed.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports remaining pumps have been able to supply the city.
A new part is supposed to bring the city back to full power by the time fresh water demand peaks for pollock processing next month.
The city uses pumps to push water from the Monashka Reservoir.
