Kaw Water Plant construction begins, water crane to be temporarily out of service
(Lawrence, Kan.) – The Lawrence Utilities Department plans to begin construction on the transmission piping and valves coming from the Kaw Water Treatment Plant beginning on Monday, March 5 through the end of March. This construction will require that the plant be shut down through that time period. Although water customers will not be affected by this shut down, the water crane at this location will not be in operation during that time.
The water crane is primarily used by customers for bulk water purchases into tanks for transport. As an alternative, these customers should contact the City of Perry or the City of Eudora for purchase of bulk water from their facilities. Commercial or construction users can contact the Utilities Department to rent a hydrant meter.
Street closures with this project include 3rd Street from Indiana to Mississippi and Indiana Street from 3rd Street to the Burcham Park entrance. The park entrance will remain open and accessible via 2nd Street. Traffic impact scheduled to last through April 6, 2012.
