If you feel rain on a cloudless day the Lancaster County town of Kershaw, it’s not your imagination.

The town’s old water tower on Floyd Street is leaking, reports the Lancaster News, and town officials are not sure when it will be fixed.

Making repairs is tricky, town officials told the Lancaster News, because tinkering with the tank will reduce water pressure for the western side of town.

As a result, officials have decided to wait until a new $2.3 million water tower is built and that won’t be until October 2017, the Lancaster news says.

Kershaw is about 60 miles southeast of Charlotte and has a population of about 1,900 people.
