The fix for a damaged 24 inch water main on SE 48th Place in the Taft area is about to be made. The project went out to bid and the bid was awarded to Devils Lake Rock Company. Devils Lake said they’d do it for $66,220 – 6,220 more than the city figured it would cost but the bid was considerably lower than the other two bids. So the city council accepted the bid from Devils Lake.
The water line will be relocated to the north side of the road and buried a little deeper than it was. The project should be complete sometime in October according to City Engineer Stephanie Reid.
