Current Status/Progress Report

Water main materials are scheduled to be delivered over the course of the next two weeks. Wyoming Excavators intends to start water main construction the week of July 18. Over the course of the next two weeks, you can expect to see utility companies locating their underground utilities and marking them with spray paint and flags. Please do not remove the flags from your yard as they are critical to protecting the existing underground infrastructure during construction. Prein&Newhof will have survey crews on site staking the water main. Please do not remove stakes installed in your yard as they are critical for construction. If flags or stakes are removed, it will only delay the project.

We look forward to a successful construction project in your neighborhood. Please contact any project representative below if you have questions or concerns.
