Water Infrastructure Improvements
Benton Utilities advertised and accepted bids this summer for water system improvements. We plan to budget approx. $500,000 per year for water utility replacement and upgrades each year for the next five years. Coakley Company of Hot Springs was the low bidder and awarded the contract. This company has completed several projects in our area over the years and has always proved to be a good contractor.
The water improvement contract will include the replacement of existing water mains, service lines, meters, valves and fire hydrants within our existing system. In some cases, we will be replacing existing 2” water mains with 6” water mains allowing for the installation of fire hydrants for fire protection not available before. Crews will be working in various areas throughout the City over the next several months. Currently, they are working in the area of River, Dale, Banner, Spangle, Ike, and Henry Streets.
While we apologize for any inconveniences the construction may cause the outcome will be a benefit for years to come.
