Municipal Pipe Tool Company is in Prairie City and has begun the north side sewer lining project. Residents and business in the affected areas will receive a notice that looks like the one below, on their door the day before work will be performed in their area. (The date will be on the notice.) Since this process lines the existing sewer pipes, you will not be able to flush toilets, take showers or baths, do laundry or dishes or do anything else that would send water into the sewer system the day they are working in your area. (If you would ignore the notice and use your water, it would fill up your service line and potentially back up into your home or building.) After the trucks have left the area, you may use your sewer system as usual. Thank you for your cooperation during this project.
Prairie City Police Chief Joe Bartello has issued a press release regarding the incident on October 9, 2016. Click here to access the document.
