Water Line Project Update

posted in: Public Works | 3

Just a quik update on the citywide water project. The replacement of the city mains is nearly complete. Steven DeFuentes, the its water supervisor, has told me to expect final completion of the replacement of the mains by the end of the month, weather permitting. Please excuse the shutoff of the water supply when breaks occur. The existing system had very few water shutoff valves, so when a break occurred, the entire city supply had to be stopped. The new system will have many valves allowing for isolation of trouble areas, allowing us to keep service supplied the majority of the town for most repairs.

      I see that the water line project has created lots of drainage issues. What are your plans for taking care of that?

        Thanks for asking, Jane.

        The most recent storm caused a bit of flooding, thats for sure! In the short term, we’re trying to recover and get back on schedule to finish our main line replacement by the end of the month. If the weather cooperates, we should meet that goal. Long term, we have a plan that includes a lot of great ideas I’d love to share with you at the next council meeting.
