What projects are scheduled to improve the city waterline system?

1. 24th Avenue Waterline Project:
This project involves the installation of a new waterline from the water plant to 12th Avenue and Prairie Street.

Construction Duration: It is expected to take approximately one year to complete.

Purpose: The primary objective of this project is to increase the capacity and efficiency of our water distribution network in this specific area.

2. Southeast Transmission Main Project:
The Southeast Transmission Main project is extensive, spanning from 12th Avenue to Garfield Street, then to South Avenue, and finally to Carter Street.

Design Phase: Anticipated to last up to 18 months.

Construction Phase: Expected to span between 24 to 36 months.

Purpose: The Southeast Transmission Main project will significantly enhance our ability to transport water across the entire city using a single, large pipe, before distributing it to the mains throughout town. This design will help reduce water velocity in the rest of the system, contributing to its overall stability.

These projects reflect our commitment to investing in the long-term reliability and efficiency of the city’s water distribution system. While we understand that construction may cause temporary inconveniences, we are dedicated to minimizing disruptions and keeping our community informed throughout the process.
