Northview Dr/11th St Water Main Decision Made

During the Dell Rapids City Council regular meeting on Monday, April 7th, the Dell Rapids City Council made the decision not to replace the water main line on Northview Dr. and 11th St. in 2014.  This decision came at the recommendation of a committee that has been monitoring the situation since the beginning of the year.  The committee met the week of March 31st and made the following recommendation:

  • the city continue to monitor the lines and flush throughout the summer and fall months
  • the Northview Dr./11th St water mine line not be replaced in 2014
  • place this water main line on the list for replacement and make the determination on the priority of this line’s replacement date during the Capital Improvement Planning process
  • end the reduced water rates that have been in place for the past couple of months.

As the weather has warmed over the past month, the city has been flushing the lines every 7-14 days when the weather is good for flushing.

Mayor Scott Fiegen said, “I was told the water is now clear and has been for two weeks.  Is that still the case or is that not the case?”

City Administrator Justin Weiland responded, “It has been clear…I know when the guys are flushing, it’s been clear faster and takes a very short period of time to flush those hydrants out before the water is clear.”

Dell Rapids resident Kellee Miles, who was in attendance during the council meeting, shared that the water has been clear.

Currently all the valves are open.

The water main discussion begins at the 3:30 mark and ends at the 8:57 mark of the archived video named DR City Council 4-7-14.
