Kong's Presence Still Felt

On Monday, July 5 the King Kong Project will take an extra day in observance of Independence Day and return to work in Eastland on Tuesday, July 6.

Crews will continue with the installation of the 12 inch water main along Plummer from Walnut to Dixie.

Additional crews will continue with the installation of the new 6 inch water main along Marsh between Foch and Sadosa. Tie ins will be performed early in the week and residents could experience service interruptions for up to 5 hours.

Installation of a new 6 inch water main will begin along Halbryan between Conner and Pershing as well as along North Lamar from Moss to Kossouth.

Dependent upon sample results, crews should begin tie over of services to the new water main along Daugherty from Plummer to Valley and along Valley from Daugherty to Dixie. Expect service interruptions periodically in these areas.

Pedestal work will continue at Park Hill with crews pouring the final rings for the new water tower.

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.

Please remember when travelling in these construction areas to be on the alert and watch for crew members as well as heavy equipment, trenches, etc.
