Phase II of the Salmon Springs Water Main Replacement Project includes the replacement of approximately 3,000 linear feet of existing cast iron water main that was installed in the early 1900's. This phase of the project will continue the main replacement that was accomplished in Phase 1 of the project that installed approximately 600 linear feet of water main from the collection site of salmon springs to the City's chlorination compound. Once complete, the existing portion of water transmission line will remain in place due to it's current location within a sensitive area and will be kept in operating condition in the event an emergency bypass of the new water transmission line is required. A large portion of the Phase II Salmon Springs Water Main Replacement will be within the City of Sumner Right of Way. See the Project Vicinity Map Below.
