Construction activities began May 22nd, 2018, with a substantial completion date slated for October 6th, 2018.


The project will be funded through a combination of Sales Tax Funds, Water Main Funds, Sanitary Sewer Funds, and Special Assessments.


  • The existing water mains, installed nearly 60 years ago, are cast iron pipe (CIP) and prone to frequent breaks. Full replacement will significantly minimize impacts and costs associated with breaks.
  • The existing Vitrified Clay Pipe (VCP) sanitary sewer mains, installed nearly 60 years ago, are showing signs of deterioration. As part of this project, we will replace the sanitary sewer pipe using modern materials and methods.
  • The existing concrete street roadway has deteriorated significantly and has exceeded its life expectancy, making street reconstruction necessary. The roadway reconstruction will include asphalt pavement with a gravel base, concrete curb and gutter, storm sewer inlets and leads, driveway approaches, street lights, and isolated sidewalk repairs.
