A $500,000 water mains upgrade in Nelson will cause some traffic delays and detours …but the disruption is necessary.
This from Manager of Utilities Rob Nystrom as a total of four crews work on replacing pipe on Hall Mines, Hoover and then Stanley Street.
Some of the pipe – a forerunner to galvanized steel- is over a hundred years old.
Some of the pipe is too narrow to carry modern fire-fighting flows.
The work continues until mid-July.
