That is enough to fill the Marlin Bulldog Stadium at least 5 times per day with fresh water and about 3/4's way per day with wastewater. It also includes the maintenance of the City's over 150 miles of streets, over 55 miles of water lines, over 35 miles of sewer and storm drainage lines, over 150 fire hydrants and over 150 manholes.
