The District has completed all the required bores to begin construction of the above water lines. These projects add four fill hydrants and complete two loop feeds. The original water lines are forty years old and beginning to fail; therefore, require replacing. We are replacing all 2, 2.5 & 3-inch water lines with 6 or 8-inch water lines over several years. New lines will have a 50-year life span.
We will replace 12 years and older meter cans and meter setters as a continuing project to update the oldest equipment in the system.
