Project I: Water Improvement District No. 2020-6: Horace Proper Water System Replacement
This project will improve the current system by replacing or installing water main, gate valves, fire hydrants, curb stops, and water service lines where deficiencies are present. The work will increase the ability for more isolation of the system and minimize water surface disruption to existing water users while performing maintenance activities.
Project II: Water Improvement District No. 2020-7: Connection to Cass Rural Water District
This project will consist of infrastructure connecting to the Cass Rural Water User System and a transmission line from the connection point of the Cass Rural system to the City of Horace water distribution system. This project will work to meet the current and future city needs by providing an additional water source and increasing access to water storage for use during fires and emergencies. The project also establishes water system uniformity within Horace and improves the quality of water in the Horace Service Area.
KPH, Inc. was awarded the project and work began in August.
Mayor Peterson was able to secure a $3,053,000 award from the ND Department of Water Resources plus an additional $1,308,000 to cover the cost of this major project. While utility bills were increased from a base rate of $12 to $19.50, it was because of the funding that was awarded to the City that residents were spared special assessments.
