10th and Tasker

During investigation and repair of infrastructure on 10th street in March and April 2015, it was determined that the water main and sewer from 10th and Tasker to 10th and Moore should be replaced. Please read our fact sheet for the breakdown of events that led to this conclusion.

It is anticipated that 10th Street will remain closed for several months. We will update this time line as more information becomes available.

Currently, we are:
  • fixing valves along 10th street to minimize service disruption during main repair
  • excavating for installation of the new water and sewer mains. This work is being done by our contractor, Nello Construction
