Phenix City water system gets upgrade
PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say residents in the east Alabama town of Phenix City should see better water pressure on the city's south side when a $870,000 upgrade to a water main is completed.
Utilities Director Roger Conner tells The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (http://bit.ly/RqmCml) that the project is expected to be finished around Jan. 7.
Conner said workers are installing an 18-inch-wide pipe alongside the current 6-inch line from 15th Street to Broad Street, where it will connect to a 24-inch main, Conner said.
He said the project is being funded through bond money.
