City Water Project at PMC Underway

Excavation is underway on the north entrance of Prowers Medical Center, part of the project initiated by the City of Lamar to replace aging pipeline feeding Prowers Medical Center.  Once completed, in about 90 days from an earlier estimate, the 2,200 foot long pipeline will eliminate an old 14 inch water line serving the hospital and Willow Valley.  This will provide new and improved water connections and a more reliable water source for the medical providers.  The northerly path of the pipe runs between Prowers Medical Center and High Plains Community Health Center.

The cost of the project, approximately $230,984, will be paid for from remaining ARRA funds and a State Revolving Fund that financed earlier water improvements and upgrades in the city over the past two years.
