Businesses and residents in the King Kong Project areas are reminded to keep a good supply of fresh drinking water as well as a supply of flushing water on hand in the event of a service interruption. Crews attempt to keep the interruptions as minimal as possible, but unexpected issues could result in longer water outages.
The Week of September 6, 2010:
(All crews will take Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6 off)
Due to unforeseen issues, crews were delayed with last week’s schedule of work. Most have been rescheduled for this week.
Crews will be tying over existing main water lines to the new 6 inch main on West Valley from South Daugherty to South Dixie. EXPECT UP TO 5 HOUR SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS.
Crews will continue with the installation of a new 8 inch water main along an alley way from South Mulberry to South Green St. north of the First United Methodist Church.
Tie overs of new services will continue along South Marsh and South Halbryan with service interruptions of up to ONE HOUR. Tie overs of existing mains to the new 6 inch main will follow.
Curb and asphalt crews will be working on College from West Commerce to Railroad Avenue; along East Plummer from South Bassett to South Seaman; South Seaman from East Valley to East Garvin; and North Lamar from Moss to Railroad Avenue.
In addition new work was began last week with the construction of the tank system at the City Park. Crews will be assembling the ‘bowl’ portion of the new water tower over the next week or so. Following the assembling, the bowl will be painted and the logo design added. Once complete the bowl, which will be assembled around the pedestal, will be lifted in place.
With the construction of the new water tower underway, the normal traffic route around the City Park will be interrupted throughout the summer.
