Progress report: Hwy 704 Water Line project well on schedule
By Ed Waggener
The Columbia/Adair County Utilities District Project to bring adequate water pressure to customers on Fairplay Road is proceeding at a rapid pace, with barring an unforeseeable event, will be completed by the late August 2017 construction deadline.
As of Friday, May 5, 2017, only .8 mile of the over 6 mile length of the project remained to be completed. The project extends along KY 768 from Wheeler Hill Road to KY 704/768 just south of Fairplay, KY, near the Piner Loy place.
Clean up is following immediately behind the construction. Black drives along the way are crossed by underground bores, and open trenches at graveled entries are being immediately resurfaced.
The project is designed to take care of future residential growth in the area, provide adequate water for agricultural purposes, improve the supply of water for firefighting, and lessen dependence on out-of-county suppliers for the CAUD system.
The contractor for the project is Stotts Construction Company of Columbia. Monarch Engineering Company of Lawrenceburg, KY, designed the project. Lenny Stone is General Manager of Columbia/Adair Utilities District. The CAUD board of trustees now includes Chairman Wid Harris, and members Doug Sapp, Junior Brown, David Jones, and Mike Newton.
