Vicksburg Finally Getting Auxilliary Water Line

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — Work will soon be getting underway on a much delayed auxiliary water line to Vicksburg from the city’s water treatment plant. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen Monday approved awarding a $5 million contract to the lowest of five bids received for the project by Hemphill construction of Florence. All five bids for the project came in lower than the estimated $6 million that had been budgeted. The new line will help ensure that water to the city is not interrupted in case of an issue with the main line from the plant. The auxiliary water line will start at the city’s water treatment heading south along Washington Street to connect to the existing water line in front of the Jesse L. Brent Lower Mississippi River Museum and Interpretive Center.
