FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 8, 2012
City of Kansas City, Mo., Water Services Department crews completed the restoration of 10th Street between Main and Walnut streets on Friday, June 8.
Replacement of the new water main was completed earlier this week, and the street restoration was completed today and reopened to traffic.
“WSD had two contractor crews working both day and night to replace the main as quickly as possible,” said Water Services Director Terry Leeds.“This main had broken a couple times over the past year causing costly street and property damage and inconvenience to consumers, and given these factors, including the age of the pipe which had a date stamp of 1896, the main needed to be replaced.”
