A severe water leak that cost the City of Mountainburg thousands of dollars has been fixed.
The leak was fixed by noon Thursday, according to Mountainburg Police Chief Vincent Clamser.
City workers had been searching for the source of the problem since November.
Mountainburg Mayor Susan Wilson said the city has paid more than $36,000 in water bills since the start of the year.
This money came from the city’s annual $93,000 budget.
