Project Overview:


This project is part of a multi-year effort to improve city water infrastructure that transports water from the main Project 7 supply line at Highway 50 to the Sunnyside Tank. The project was identified as a critical need in the city's Water Master Plan and has been implemented in phases since 2016. 

In 2019 the city upsized an existing 12-inch line along 6800 Road between Miami and Sunnyside roads to a 24-inch line. This phase of the project upsized the remainder of the line along Miami Road between 6800 Road and Highway 50.
