FARMINGTON -- A well house project on Main Street will be completed before the end of the year, City Engineer Paul Hirst says.
City officials have put plans to build the well house, on Main Street adjacent to the Community Center, out to bid, and Hirst said he hopes construction of the local project can begin after the city's Festival Days in July. He expects the work to be completed before the end of the year.
The well house will be on the site of the old Mary Myers home on Main Street, near the new City Hall.
The city's water system currently employs three wells, and the addition of another well is expected to accommodate some of the city's potential growth on the west side, plus provide for commercial growth at Station Park.
