Water main extension project in process!

The City will be extending the water mains on Ash, Birch and Cedar Streets, between 5th & 7th Avenues East. Lots in this area are currently served by drinking wells and will now have the option to hook up to City drinking water.

While streets are under construction for this project we respectfully request that residents do not park on the street to allow our crew safe accessibility in the right-of-way.

Once the project is complete in each phase, residents will have the option to hook up to City water if they choose. Applicable Water Impact Fees will apply when/if residents choose to hook up (currently $1,114.00). NO ONE IS REQUIRED TO HOOK UP UNLESS THE EXISTING DRINKING WELL FAILS OR REQUIRES SUBSTANTIAL REPAIR.

Phase 1 begins July 17, 2017 - Starting on Cedar Street at 5th Avenue East to 7th Avenue East. These are the lot in Blocks 7, 8, 9 and 10 of the Northwest Townsite along Cedar Street only.

Phase 2 scheduled to begin August 14, 2017 - Starting on Birch Street at 5th Avenue East to 7th Avenue East. These are the lots in Blocks 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the Northwest Townsite along Birch Street only.

Phase 3 TBD, but no later than late-August - Starting on Ash Street at 6th Avenue East to 7th Avenue East. These are the lots in Blocks 4 and 5 of the Northwest Townsite along Ash Street only.
