It may be out of your sight, but it is not out of the City's mind. Take a look at the possibilities.
We are asking for community involvement because in the end it is your water, so please send us any comments or suggestions to help us.

- approximately 18,000 feet of Cast Iron piping
- approximately 7,200 feet of PVC 4” or less
- approximately 18,200 feet of PVC over 4”
- minimum of 1,000 gpm for 60 minutes for residential
- minimum of 1,500gpm for 120 minutes for commercial
General rule of thumb is a 4" line can only handle approximately 550 gpm.
- approximately 32,000 feet of pipeline needs to be replaced (72% of the system)
System Improvement Needs:
- Approximately 32,000 feet of new PVC pipeline: the distribution system is estimated to cost around $5.5 million (based on the preliminary cost estimates the distribution portion will need to be broken up into phases) and the well distribution line is estimated to cost $850,000
- New or additional storage capacity
- Water Treatment Facility
