Falls City to provide water to Indian Cave State Park

(KLZA)-- The Falls City Council Monday evening approved an agreement with Rural Water District Number 2 of Richardson County for the City to sell water to the Water District for a new water line .  

The new Rural Water District line will begin on the north edge of Falls City and go north along Highway 73 for approximately six miles, then a short way east and then back north to Indian Cave State Park. 

The agreement will limit the amount of water to be sold per day to 100-thousand gallons.  

Mayor Jerry Oliver told Council members the State of Nebraska is paying for the new water line and they are gauging interest from residents along the new line to hook on.

While the original plans called for a 4-inch line for the new service,  Rural Water District Board member Gayle Swisegood told MSCNEWS it appears with approximately 50 additional customers interested in signing up for the water service, it is likely the project will be bid with a 6-inch line.  

The agreement is for 40 years.
