Water line replaced

April 10, 2013

The Wapakoneta Daily News received several inquiries about a possible water line break at the intersection of East Auglaize and Brighthorn streets early Wednesday. The situation turned out to be general maintenance as a 3/4-inch line to a home was being replaced at about 9:30 a.m. Wapakoneta Public Works Department crews then worked on lines near the intersection of East Auglaize and Water streets. This is part of the $2.3 million East Auglaize Street reconstruction project.

With an upgrade of power poles stretching from Wapakoneta to Shawnee along Shawnee Road, contractors have pitched the idea of having a storage site on location at Delong Pioneer Park in Cridersville at a joint committees meeting last month — which is the halfway point of the 10-mile project.
