Virtual Public Meeting
To better inform the affected property owners, the City held a virtual public information meeting to discuss the Bluff City Boulevard Phase III Combined Sewer Separation Project with partial Water Main Replacement along with the replacement of lead water service lines; specifically, the private portion of the lead water service line from the City’s shut off valve to the internal water meter. The meeting was not mandatory, but was recommended for anyone who had questions about the project.
