Locust Mountain & Revis Hill Water Line Extensions

Project Description

This project expanded the Locke-Fern & Dollard Road water distribution system to serve rural water customers along Locust Mountain Road and Revis Hill Road in Crawford County, Arkansas. The project included the construction of 31,500 feet of 4-inch water line, 6,700 feet of 3-inch water line, a water pump station, and a 100,000-gallon bolted steel water storage standpipe on Locust Mountain. This project allowed the Locke-Fern and Dollard Road Waterworks Public Facilities Board to add 90 new customers who previously hauled their water for potable water consumption or depended upon individual groundwater well supplies that were inadequate in quantity, water quality, or both. Hawkins-Weir Engineers provided preliminary engineering, funding assistance, project design, construction observation, and construction management services for this project. Project funding was provided by Arkansas Economic Development Commission grant funds as administered by the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, and by USDA Rural Development loan funds.
