The next Northside Sunday Supper will be this Sunday, December 15, from 5-7pm at WPCRC. This is a free event and all northsiders are welcome to attend and socialize with our neighbors. The Sherman Neighborhood Association will be one of the sponsors of the Sunday Supper in March.
The latest about Well 7 from Al Larson, PE, BCEE
Principal Engineer, Madison Water Utility

We are currently working through all the approvals and the final design documents for the new pump station, filters and reservoir. We have experienced some schedule challenges with gaining ownership of the two houses next to the well. That took several months longer than anticipated which delayed final design work. We are now on track and the current schedule is as follows:

Complete final design drawings and specifications' ready for bidding = January 15, 2014
Advertise for bids, receive bids, execute construction contract = January to April
Separate demolition work for the two houses and the well house and reservoir = March and April 2014
Break ground for construction of new well house, filters and reservoir = May 2014
Construction complete and system fully operational = June 1, 2015
