Work is expected to begin within two to four weeks to replace the antiquated water main along Glades Road in the Minot section of town, according to Acting Department of Public Works Supervisor Kevin Cafferty. The project entails installation of 2,700 feet of eight-inch water pipe, as well as new fire hydrants and water connections. The work is expected to last 10 to 12 weeks and will cost about $500,000, Cafferty said. Residents will lose water service “on occasion” and will be notified beforehand, he said. When the work is complete, the area should have improved water quality and increased water flow for firefighters, he said.
