Progress Being Made

With the meet and greet meetings being completed, IARWC is continuing working towards meeting and greeting property owners as to discuss the water line routing and participation of those property owners.

Over the next coming weeks of March 2023 more information will be sent out to those property owners along the proposed water main route.  Additionally MHE has been hired as to have personnel personally meet the property owners.
