SWA plans water service interruption west of Dickinson

Residents west of Dickinson will temporarily be without water services Monday.

Contractors are set to reroute a Southwest Water Pipeline project transmission line beginning at 6 a.m., Southwest Water Authority officials announced Friday. The project is anticipated to last most of the day, leaving customers between 40th Avenue Southwest to 116th Avenue Southwest without water. Those residents are located along Highway 10.
