The existing waterline along Second Street has experienced multiple breaks since 2011. This project will replace the existing 6" watermain with a new 8" watermain. The new main will provide a redundant feed to the downtown area in the event of breaks on First Capitol and Madison. Unnerstall Contracting has been awarded the contract for this project.
