Humboldt to benefit from road work’s water needs



April 9, 2018 - 11:00 PM

HUMBOLDT – Emery Sapp & Sons, the Kansas City, Mo., company that will rebuild U.S. 169 from southeast of Iola to south of Humboldt will pay $20,000 upfront to purchase water from Humboldt, City Administrator Cole Herder told council members Monday night.

That will be about $2,000 more than cost of materials for Humboldt to extend a 2,000-foot six-inch main to within 1,000 feet of a batch plant the company will use to mix concrete for the rebuild.

“They think 4 million gallons will be needed,” Herder said, which will send about $32,000 Humboldt’s way for water purchases, or 60 percent more than guaranteed reimbursement.
