Small changes. Huge results.


YATES BUILDING

CWL has awarded the contract for the exterior renovation of the Yates building located at 315/317 East Street, and work is expected to start in November. This will be an exterior-only renovation and will mostly focus on the front (east) face of the building. The renovation will greatly enhance the appearance of the building and increase our potential for finding a tenant to lease the building. Our goal is to complete the renovations by 2015.

WATER SYSTEM HYDRAULIC MODEL

CWL has contracted SSR Engineers to assist us in constructing a hydraulic model of our water system. The model will become an ongoing planning and analysis tool that will help us to identify and size needed upgrades to our water pipe network as our customer's water demands grow.

CITY OF JONESBORO SEWER GRANT PROJECTS

CWL is working with the City of Jonesboro on two sanitary sewer projects which are being funded through grant funds that were acquired by the city. The projects are:

  2. Tonya Drive residential area (approximately 600' of 12" and 4000' of 8" gravity sewer)

The Dalton Farmer Road Construction has been awarded, and work should start in November. Tonya Drive plans are complete and approved by the Arkansas Department of Health. This project should be bid in mid-fall.
