The proposed project includes improvements to the City of Williams’ water supply and distribution infrastructure. Improvements would occur at the City’s water tank site on Theatre Road, and distribution system improvements would occur in public road rights-of-way and utility easements. Improvements at the water tank site would include installing a new well and associated equipment, installing a new oxidation-filtration system to remove manganese, constructing a well house, constructing a new backwash tank, installing a new water main from the well to the water tank, and installing an emergency back-up generator.
Distribution system improvements would include replacing/upsizing ±8,110 linear feet of water mains; constructing just over 200 linear feet of new main to create a loop out of existing dead-end lines; replacing ±80 water services, ±6 water meters and meter boxes, and ±13 fire hydrants; and adding one new fire hydrant. The purpose of the proposed project is to replace aging infrastructure, increase system pressures, provide improved fire flows and fire protection in the southwestern areas of the City, and to ensure a safe and reliable potable water supply for customers in the City’s water service area.
