The Chatfield City Council at their March 26 meeting authorized McGhie and Betts, Inc. to provide plans and specifications for two water main improvements for 2012. Mayor Don Hainlen and councilor Ken Jacobson were absent.

The improvements are expected to improve water quality and provide a capability for better management of the distribution system.

The two proposed connections include a connection of the water main on Winona Street to the water main south of Hidden Valley Estates, and a connection of the water main from the west end of Second Street toward Mill Creek Park, then south to connect to the water main at County Road 2.

The Winona Street project will require the acquisition of an easement across a vacant property.

The estimated cost for construction only of the Winona to Main Street connection is $65,000, and for the Second Street to County Road 2 connection is $66,000.

The design work by McGhie and Betts will cost $4,500 for the preliminary design and $5,000 for the final design.
