Groundbreaking Set For Water Supply and Treatment Improvements Project
MARTINSVILLE – Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Water Supply and Treatment Improvements Project will take place on Thursday, October 29th at 1:30 PM at the Water Testing Facility, 410 West Cunningham Street, Martinsville. As part of the ceremonies representatives from State Government; the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA); the contractors; Administrative Resources Association; and the city will be on hand to “turn the earth”. State Representative Peggy Mayfield and OCRA Interim Executive Director Matt Crouch will make brief remarks on behalf of the State. Mayor Kenny Costin will make brief remarks on behalf of the City.
The ceremonies mark the start of the $6.7 million project that will make distribution system improvements, which includes the drilling and development of three new wells and the decommissioning of three existing wells. Also included in the project is the renovation of the interior of the existing treatment facility including the construction of a new lab and office building adjacent to the existing treatment facility (site of the groundbreaking). The distribution system improvements also include the replacement of approximately 11,200 linear feet of existing water mains. Approximately 70 new hydrants will replace existing hydrants or be new hydrants installed in various parts of the city as part of the project.
In January of 2020, the Office of Community and Rural Affairs awarded the City of Martinsville a $700,000 grant to be applied toward this project. The balance of the project is being funded through the State Revolving Fund Loan Program.
The public is welcome to attend the groundbreaking ceremonies; however, parking at the groundbreaking site is limited. ... See MoreSee Less
