The water line replacement project will begin Monday, March 6th on the 400 – 600 block of Crockett Street and is estimated to be completed in 2 weeks.
This project will continue our efforts to replace aging infrastructure throughout the City of Odessa. This is a cast iron line that was installed in 1952 and has had several line breaks in the past, as well as a fire hydrant, that is out of service due to these breaks.
The water line replacement project will begin Monday, March 6th on the 400 – 600 block of Crockett Street and is estimated to be completed in 2 weeks. Edgardo Madrid and Associates is the Contractor for this project. The contractor will be passing out notices to customers one week prior to any street or alley closures. The contractor is also responsible for handing out notices to customers 24 hours prior to any temporary scheduled disruption of water pressure for this project. We apologize for any inconvenience in advance.
Currently, water and wastewater lines are being replaced throughout Odessa. When completed, it will do three things:
1) Eliminate future breaks in this street
2) Put back into service the fire hydrant
3) Loop the water main with adjacent water lines to increase chlorine circulation
As for working with a contractor, that was established to assist our City personnel with projects that would entail our staff to not be available for emergency repairs, water and sewer line replacements, sewer stops etc. that require immediate attention. This enables our City staff to be readily available to respond to the public utility needs.
The project will cost an estimated $75,000. If you have any questions, please feel free to the Utilities Division at 432-335-4625.
Below is the traffic control plan for street closures and the project. Know we are always working for YOU and to make our city a better place!
