LIBERTY - The current water line extension project in Casey County is almost finished, and a 90-mile project will be ready to begin as soon as funds are secured.
East Casey County Water District has 11 extensions left to construct on the current 54-line project, according to Andy Greynolds, district manager.
Water lines will soon be placed on Coffmans Branch, Martins Creek, Snake Ridge, Reynolds Creek, Shucks Creek, Mill Dam, East Patsy Riffe, Chelf Ridge and Minors Branch roads. Pump stations also will be placed on Patsy Riffe, Coffman and Snake Ridge roads, and pressure testing and santization will finish out the project before water is distributed.
Greynolds said construction is expected to be complete on the current project in February or March, depending on the weather. Minors Branch Road was not actually a part of this project, but a federal grant has been received to do the 5-mile extension from Burnt Cabin Knob Road to the Boyle County line.
