Water main repairs

Tuesday, March 21, 2017
A public works department worker digs a ditch along South Jefferson St. Thursday for the installation of a new water main. The replacement the large water main that runs along East Maple Street and then south along Jefferson on Smelter Hill is nearing completion. The work is the result of a large water leak in this water main on March 23, 2016, that drained the city's two operating water towers, forcing the city to order residents to boil water from the city's mains. Public works director, Tom Hutchison, said Monday they will be putting water in the line Tuesday or Wednesday and checking for any leaks. (Ralph Pokorny/Daily Mail)
