Utility Project in Lead Increases by Over $6,000 Due to Inaccurate Maps

During a construction project which required digging into Prospect Avenue, workers discovered that the water and sewer lines below the surface were not lining up with the maps, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Due to the inaccuracy of the maps, the project will increase by $6,559.49. Lead City Commissioners have approved the additional funding.

The water and sewer project on Prospect Avenue was originally projected to cost just over $73,000 and would replace 200 feet of storm sewer lines and water pipes. The projected cost also included repaving the street surface after the completion of the project. The new projected cost of the project is $79,617 and will likely be completed by August 2017.
