Water Line Installation Begins on Monday, October 9

Garret Madison Waterline

Monday, October 9, 2023 crews from the City of Pocatello Water Department will be replacing the water main line on Garrett Way, Madison Ave., Colorado Ave. and Maple St.

The project will start at the intersection of Garrett Way and Madison Ave., continuing down Madison Ave. to Maple St. The project will start again from the intersection of Garrett Way and Madison Ave. continuing towards Colorado St. via Garrett Way. 

Crews will work between the hours of 6:30 a.m. to approximately 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. In early November the Water Department will return to winter hours and the crews will be working 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. During the project, access to the construction area will be restricted and sections of the street will be closed while workers are digging. 

Every effort will be made to provide local access to the area when possible. Parking will also be restricted in the construction zone and residents are asked to park all vehicles away from the area during working hours. At the close of each day, access will be restored to all properties.

The work may cause short-term disruptions to water service. Individuals in and around the construction zone are encouraged to keep a supply of drinking water available. Officials ask parents and guardians to warn children about the safety hazards and to have them stay a safe distance from the construction area.

The project is anticipated to take eight weeks to complete but due to unforeseen circumstances, the work schedule may change.

Residents with questions or concerns can contact Water Department staff at (208)234-6182. For more information on the City of Pocatello Water Department, visit
