Water Projects

Missoula Water has implemented a water main replacement program to reduce leakage and replace aging water mains. The projects shown below are critical to achieving this goal. In addition to water main projects, the City completes other water system infrastructure projects that keep the system working at an efficient and optimal level of service for our customers.

  1. n 2nd st – e of orange st – Water main replacement 

North 2nd Street—East of Orange Street

Location:  N. 2nd St. from Orange St. east to to a point approximately 840-feet northwest of Spruce St.

Description:  Replace approximately 2,643 feet of Kalmein (ductile iron) water main that was originally installed in 1914. The existing main ranges in size from 6 to 12-inches in diameter.

Benefits:  This project was prioritized because the existing 109-year-old watermain is in poor condition and requires replacement.

Project Dates:  Work is expected to begin May 8 and should be completed by September 20. These dates are subject to change due to inclement weather or other unanticipated conditions. This page will be updated to provide additional information, if necessary.

Other Information:  Project contractor Gold Peak Excavating will maintain pedestrian and bicycle access adjacent to the work area throughout construction.
