Temporary water will be required to complete the project. Temporary water is water delivered by above grade small diameter pipe. Homes are typically connected via an outside hose bib. If you have an exterior hose bib that is not connected inside please be sure to notify City Hall. If you have any issues with water supply please notify the above contacts. Temporary water may result in reduced pressure and flow.
Streets will be left in a gravel state for one year. This will allow for a “freeze-thaw” cycle to take place. The streets will receive new asphalt by July 15 of the following year the underground work takes place. For road maintenance issues please contact City Hall or the Project Engineer.
