Public Works Director Says Reservoir's Full

Buffalo's main water source, Tie Hack Reservoir, is now full, according to City Works Director Les Hook, who gave his report to the city council at their last meeting.

Hook said the reservoir started spilling the first week in October.

The city used roughly fifteen feet of water from the reservoir this summer, which is slightly more than in a normal year, he said, and explained why this year's use was higher than normal.

City crews were still busy cleaning up downed branches from the recent snowstorms and moving them to the wastewater treatment plant for the winter. The city will burn the debris in the spring.

Alleys are also being working on, he said, with crews blading many of the alleys to remove holes and ruts. Crews will re-gravel them after they are bladed.

Bids will be opened for the NW Water Pipeline Project at a special meeting on Monday, October 28th at 2pm at City Hall.
