South Elm water line replacement project in Pittsburg

Updated:

News release issued by the City of Pittsburg:

As a continued effort to improve the existing water distribution system, the City of Pittsburg Department of Public Utilities has scheduled the replacement of the existing 10" water line with a new 12" water line on Elm Street near Pittsburg State University. The new 12" water line will be connected at Cleveland Street near the Overman Student Center and run north to Quincy Street.

The City will endeavor to make this project as least disruptive as possible to adjacent properties by the use of a procedure called Horizontal Directional Drilling (or boring), which eliminates the need for open trenching or open cutting roadways. This work is scheduled to begin Monday, June 24th and is anticipated to be completed by the time PSU classes resume in August. City crews will be closing sections of Elm Street, Williams Street and Carlton Street as work is being done to complete this project. Below is the schedule of anticipated street closures:

June 24-July 10 Elm Street, Cleveland to Carlton
July 10-24 Williams Street, Elm to Broadway
July 24-August 7 Carton Street, Elm to Broadway
August 7-21 Elm Street, Carlton to Quincy

People are encouraged to use extreme caution when traveling in the area of construction and be aware of workers in the WORK ZONE.

Once the water line has been installed, City crews will then begin connecting services over to the new main. At this time, there is no definite date for completion of the service connections along Elm Street.

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to know how your individual property might be affected, please contact Jarrod Mendicki, Water Specialist, at (620) 240-5142.

The City of Pittsburg thanks you for your patience and cooperation during this process!
