Water main replacement project
Toho Water Authority (TWA) is planning to replace the existing water distribution system in Intercession City. The existing pipes were installed over 65 years ago. Due to their age and condition the pipes do not provide the level of service TWA wants for its customers. Replacing the water lines will provide the following benefits to the community:
The new lines will provide more reliable service and improve water pressure.
Fire hydrants will be installed.
Existing customers will not incur any costs.
