Updates for Water Main Project: Leoti/Spokane/Devon

January 10, 2018


The water main in the south leg of Spokane at Devon will need to be relocated to accommodate support of the 24-inch gas main along Devon.  The contractor will begin this work tomorrow.  This shut down will affect the residents on Spokane, from Devon to Caldwell.  It will also affect residents along the south side of Devon, from LeMei to Spokane.  The contractor will notify the residents.  The shut-down will be tomorrow but the work on the water main is anticipated to take 6 days.
