Eastman Excavation to begin work on water main leak

06_26_13_Article_VCLawnEastman Excavation of Jackson, Wyoming will begin work this week to repair a water main break just north of the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center at 532 N. Cache Street. The Visitor Center is owned and operated by the National Elk Refuge.

June 26, 2013 (NER 13-11)

The area north of the Visitor Center has a high water table, and rain and melting snow can create standing water conditions in the spring when the ground becomes saturated. However, National Elk Refuge and Town of Jackson maintenance workers determined the source of water this spring was compounded by a leak in the underground water pipe system and investigated to determine its origin. The National Elk Refuge solicited bids and awarded the repair work to Eastman Excavation last week. Estimated repair costs total $6,500.  

Repair work is expected to be completed by early next week. For safety reasons, people are asked to stay clear of the North Park area until crews are finished and the work completed. Large equipment will be staged and operating for the duration of the project. The Visitor Center will remain open during the regular summer hours of 8:00 am to 7:00 pm while the work is underway, with no water shutoffs to the building expected.

For further information, please call the National Elk Refuge administrative offices at (307) 733.9212.
