The City of Antelope has completed construction of its Water System Improvements Project. The project had funding from three Business Oregon programs – Community Development Block Grant, Safe Drinking Water, and Water/Wastewater. Initial funding was awarded in 2016, and the City contracted with MCEDD for grant administration support at that time. The engineer for the project was Curran-McLeod, Inc. The contractor, The Saunders Company, started construction of the project in late 2019 and finished in early June. The project consisted of construction of two new 80,000 gallon concrete reservoirs and installation of accessory piping, approximately 3,500 feet of a new 3-inch diameter HDPE raw water transmission main, approximately 4,350 feet of a new 8-inch diameter C900 PVC transmission main, approximately 2,800 feet of 6-inch C900 PVC water mains, replacement of water service lines and replacement of existing water meters with new automatic reading water meters, a new telemetry system and an automatic meter reading system.
