Water line bursts at costly bathhouse
A water line has leaked at the new Burlington Bay Campground bathhouse complex in Two Harbors.
The Burlington Bay Campground bathhouse, which opened last year, was originally budgeted for $400,000. When the bids to build the bathhouse were submitted in March 2016, the lowest bid was $868,600.
Located next to the Two Harbors Chamber of Commerce building, the bathhouse serves the new RV campground.
City Administrator Dan Walker confirmed the leak for the News-Chronicle, but did not answer additional questions due to the city's ongoing investigation into the cause of the leak and the extent of the damage.
In December, the Two Harbors City Council approved the 2018 budget, which includes $250,000 for another new bathhouse in the far north corner of the campground. The building is budgeted for the campground fund. The current bathhouse on that end of the campground sustained fire damage in October.
