Last house Hooks Into Burgin Water
The last home not connected to Burgin water within the city limits of Burgin on Shakertown Road is being added to the city’s water service.
A new hydrant will also be installed on Shakertown Road.
The water and sewer project in Burgin was started in 2016 and is expected to be completed this year.
Measurements on the last house were given to the council and it was recommended to place a 6 inch line to accommodate the fire hydrant.
“We should do an exploratory dig since we don’t know where or what size exists,” said Mayor Jim Caldwell. The council agreed and approved a motion for an exploratory dig on Shakertown Road.
