What Stotts Construction company replaced on Mack Street

2013-06-14 - 109 Grant Lane, Columbia, KY . These 3/4" pipes have been replaced by 6 inch lines on Mack Street by Stotts Construction Company of Columbia, the firm hired by the bonding company to finish a Phase 14/Downtown Project, when Southern Backhoe abandoned the work. Columbia/Adair Utilities District (CAUD) General Manager Lenny Stone said that the old line was supposed to supply water to six families in the Hudson Addition. "I don't see how one person could have gotten enough water to take a shower," he said. Now there will be plenty of water, with adequate pressure to take care of an even larger neighborhood. The Downtown Project is one of several essential to rebuilding the City of Columbia's utility infrastructure, an undertaking promised by CAUD before the merger of the city and county systems. That promise is being fulfilled. It now appears that a stalled sewer system project is close to being put back on track, though at the cost of three months time in the race to remedy decades of neglect in the old city system. The pipes were on display at the Thursday, June 13, 2013, regular meeting of the CAUD Board of Directors.
