The City of Ozark Public Works is happy to report that the water main improvements portion of the Oak St. & West Downtown project have been completed, while the sewer main improvements are now at an impressive 85% completion. This significant milestone brings us closer to delivering a top-notch infrastructure system for our community.
Once underground utilities are all replaced, our dedicated crews will be ready to tackle the next phase of the project: roadway improvements. They will work diligently to reconstruct the streets and incorporate the necessary curb and gutter to handle stormwater runoff effectively.
"We still have significant improvements to make, but it is going to be fantastic when this project is completed," said Jeremy Parsons, Public Works director.
During the water main improvements, 5,337 linear feet of water main were installed, seven new fire hydrant assemblies were placed and 62 lateral service connections were provided. The sewer main improvements include 2,710 linear feet of sanitary sewer main being removed and replaced, 14 new sanitary sewer manholes being installed, and 33 new lateral service connections being provided.
The completion of Project Oak Street & West Downtown will ensure reliable water service and greatly enhance fire protection in the neighborhood. These are crucial elements that contribute to the safety and well-being of Ozark residents.
We understand this ongoing construction may cause inconvenience, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and cooperation. The City of Ozark Public Works will continue to provide regular updates on the progress of this project and any potential impacts on the community.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
