Water could begin flowing through Lewis & Clark pipeline this fall

The City of Madison has seen a number of water system projects brought to completion in the past year. 

After more than thirty years of planning, setbacks, and renewed investment, Lewis and Clark Regional Water System water, from a dedicated pipe system, will soon begin flowing to Madison.

Madison Mayor Roy Lindsay says the water should start flowing through the recently completed pipeline later this year. 

With the new water tower on the south side of town now in operation, some have wondered what will become of the old water tower located on the corner of Union Avenue and 4th street NW. Lindsay says, for the time being, the tower is continuing to serve a purpose. 

In terms of overall dollars, construction of the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System  is an estimated 98% complete.
