WATER BOOSTER TO BE UP AND RUNNING
If all goes as planned, a new Oak Creek water booster station could be operational by next weekend.
Oak Creek Town Manager Ray Leibensperger told the Oak Creek Board of Trustees this week that inspectors will spend the night in Oak Creek on Thursday and then start the booster station up on Friday.
"By the time they leave Friday afternoon, it should be up and running," he said.
The estimated $185,000 project will improve water pressure on the north side of Oak Creek.
