City officials said work on a $9.5 million water improvement project is “progressing nicely.”

Meanwhile, officials promised yards torn up in the construction process will be returned to their original state.

After laying the main water line in the ground, crews then has to be pressure test and chlorinate the line. After that, the service lines will be changed out and a crew will follow to do clean-up work in the yard, street, and right-of-way. The crew will then move on to the next location. All yards where water lines are being installed will be restored to their original state. As always, there could be delays due to weather, time schedules, and unforeseen circumstances.  

The work is currently being done on S. Valley St. in Neosho.
