September, 2019:

Water Main Pipeline Project: Phase two of our pipeline construction project begins this month. New 10-inch pipeline and four fire hydrants will be installed along Lake Drive from Quince to Tamarack, a major upgrade of our water system infrastructure. Contractor is PK Mechanical. Traffic on Lake Drive will be directed to one lane during the day while the project is completed. We expect work to be completed in 3-4 weeks. We appreciate your patience during construction.
