The City of Knox wants to continue improving water service in Wythogan Park. The water department recently installed new lines for the splash pad. As part of that project, they upgraded the existing infrastructure to accommodate a future expansion. Mayor Dennis Estok asked Water Superintendent Todd Gardner last week to get an estimate on taking the water line all the way back through the park. He also wants to look into tying the existing restrooms on to the upgraded lines.
Gardner says upgrades to the water line and fire hydrant that serve the former B&H Supply building on South Heaton Street will be made in June. That building will soon be home to the SCILL Center’s welding program.
Plans also call for hydrants to be replaced at the corner of Shield and Lake and Bower and Lake Streets prior to paving by the city street department.
