The following work will update the sections of old and undersized water lines to current standards:

  • Replacement of the main water line in the 700 to 900 blocks of Fourth Street.
  • Replacement of the main water line along 400 and 500 blocks of West Gore Street and down the west lane of the 1300 block of McQuarrie Avenue.

This next project will bring water from Selous Creek to our City Reservoir at Mountain Station.
