Water project made much smoother by some people

July 27, 2000

The city of DeSoto, with the services of K&B Construction, has just completed an extensive upgrade of its water distribution system. The completion of this project has greatly increased the water department's ability to reduce the large-scale service interruptions that we have had to endure in the past.

Our system is not completely fool proof, but we now have a lot more options when it comes to maintaining our system and service to the community.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our mayor, city council and city administrator for the opportunity to do this upgrade. Special recognition should go to Rick Glass and the K&B crews for all of their efforts to notify the public and work as quickly as they could.

They were great to work with and we appreciate their efforts to make a difficult situation much easier.

Thanks to the waste water department staff, which put in some long days during this time. In addition, the ladies at city hall deserve praise for enduring numerous calls of complaint during this project.

And, thanks to the citizens of DeSoto, who were so patient and understanding during this time. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience this project might have caused

There are some key citizens who made this project possible. Their knowledge of the system provided us with some much-needed advice and made what could have been a very difficult job quite manageable. Those citizens are: Eldon Brown, Ron Hess, Burrel Steele and Walt Jonston.

Thanks to everyone.

Joe Cribbs, Superintendent, DeSoto Water Department
