Construction season going well at Lewis & Clark

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- Despite a setback with a major pump incident, the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System is having a good construction season.

Executive Director Troy Larson says they are knocking down their punch list.

Larson says they have also been able to start on their water plant expansion plan.

Larson says the expansion will go on at the same time they build out their pipeline plans.

Early in August, when contractors were testing a big new collector well pump, some brackets broke, causing major damage to the pump and the building. Larson says they hope to have that extra well capacity available later this fall.
