Water Projects

Missoula Water has implemented a water main replacement program to reduce leakage and replace aging water mains. The projects shown here are critical to achieving that goal. In addition to water main projects, the City completes other water system infrastructure projects that keep the system working at an efficient and optimal level of service for our customers.

S. 3rd Street W. Water Main Replacement—Completed

Location:  S. 3rd St. W.—west of Myrtle St. to Orange St.

Description:  This project will replace approximately 3 blocks of old kalmein water main that is prone to leakage. Work will begin at Myrtle St. and move to the west with no more than two blocks closed at a time.

Benefits:  Replacing old water main pipe reduces the amount of water that leaks from the system. This also reduces the utility’s energy use and costs by not continually pumping water that leaks from the system before it reaches the customer.

Project Dates:  Scheduled to begin July 22 with an anticipated completion date of September 9, 2022. These dates are subject to change due to weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances.
