Geer Road Water Line Extension
Crews extend the water main along Geer Road in northwest Hermiston.
|PROJECT ID:||W 14.0|
- Extends the city water main from W. Theater Lane to W. Harper Road.
- Aligns with current road right-of-way to minimize need for asphalt removal and replacement.
- Tees and valves will allow future installation of fire hydrants
WHY IT’S NEEDED
Dead-end line provides water to more than 200 homes and businesses. Any shutdown cuts off service to the entire area.
“Looping” the line will mitigate inconvenience during maintenance or a line break. The project will also improve flow for fire protection and increase both water quality and pressure.
