Hot Sulphur Springs water project construction gets under way today

The Town of Hot Sulphur Springs is scheduled to begin construction on the town water project on Monday, March 15, with some exploratory excavation work near the water tank site, to be followed by more extensive digging at that site.

The $3.3 million project is being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

“Everyone involved in the project is hoping that explosives will not have to be used,” said Cindy Southway who is a consultant on the project.

Beginning April 5, construction will also begin near the water plant.

Both construction sites will be excavated using “Best Management Practices” (BMPs) for erosion and sediment control, Southway said, including the use of rice-straw wattles and pine-beetle-killed log berms to control sediment from moving off site.

Construction will generally take place Monday through Friday between 6:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
