The City of Oxford held a groundbreaking ceremony for its 5.8-mile water line replacement on Friday, November 30, 2018, at 210 Coleman Street.
City of Oxford Mayor Jackie Sergent, City Manager Alan Thornton, City Engineer Amy Ratliff and Division of Environmental Quality’s Division of Water Infrastructure Director Kim Colson spoke about the $5.8 million project which was funded by the Division of Water Infrastructure and approved by the State Water Infrastructure Authority.
The undersized water lines, some more than 100 years old, will be replaced by this project which began in 2016. The new lines will correct water quality, low system pressure, and will help in reducing outages and water loss.
