Work on the temporary watermain system between the two Crocus Street intersections with Mississippi Boulevard is expected to be complete by early next week. Work on the permanent watermain trunk line replacement will follow, with service connections anticipated to take place late next week. Work on the final service connections between Direct River Drive and Crocus Street is expected to be complete early next week, and gravel placement will follow. Topsoil re-establishment from 108th Lane to 109th Lane is also expected to occur.
Property owners are advised to remove landscaping encroachments that currently exist in the public right of way in order to avoid damage from watermain and service installations. Residential property lines measure to 15 feet from the back of curb. The City's contractor will not be responsible for replacing these items if damaged. Residents should note the location of their water service shut off (marked with a blue flag and paint).
The Contractor will require an area of 17 feet (measured from back of curb) to 10 feet (5-feet either side of the service) for excavation to replace these water service shut offs. If property owners have any questions regarding removals for water service replacements, they should contact the City Inspector, Ron Sample, at 763-257-3874 for more information.
