Why does H2Go paint blue lines on curbs to identify where water meters are?

H2Go, also known as Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer, uses both paint markings and flags to identify where water and sewer lines and meters are, said maintenance supervisor Russ Lane. This is done primarily to help workers avoid hitting lines.

H2Go does not come back and clean the paint up, but it uses a water-soluble paint that will wash away, Lane said. The markings are not made by more permanent oil-based paint.

    B/c big blue markings are not bad enough, I have noted two in the Leland area that were misspelled. “Vailve” and “Leack”.

    Please tell Russ Lane that in a couple of areas in the Willows developement the full address is written on the curb. It looks like grafitti. Also I guess the water soluable is not working. Its still there . Please clean it up its not a little BLUE line.
