The Liberty Lake Sewer and Water District is planning replacement of 3,180 feet of 1960’s deteriorated water main in South Liberty Drive between the end of South Lilac Lane to East Liberty Creek Road 500 feet past the intersection of East Tum Tum Drive (see project location map below).
The replacement of the deteriorated water main is intended to reduce liability and water loss from leakage, improve loss of ser-vice pressure during periods of high demand, and improve fire flow. This replacement will remove steel water main that contains lead joints. Individual water meters will be replaced on South Liberty Drive, including the service lines from the water main to the property line at the addresses between 1717 South Liberty Drive and 24178 East Dreamwood Circle.
The District anticipates the project bid and award to occur in May 2019 with construction time of 70 working days (Monday – Fri-day) beginning in June 2019. The District will require the contractor to keep one lane of traffic open during construction with road flaggers and/or temporary traffic signals at both ends. There will be some inconveniences to drivers during construction and we are making every effort to minimize those. The District is coordinating this project with Spokane County who already planned road re-surfacing in 2019. Our desire was to limit impacts through this coordination. The District recognizes the impact to residents for this complex project and we ask for your patience and understanding as we jointly complete road and waterline replacement.
We look forward to continuing to provide our customers safe and reliable drinking water. For questions or for more information please contact the District at 922-5443.
