Construction of the KWA water pipeline is just a few months of good weather away from being complete.
On Friday, an excavator was digging a trench along a lonely stretch of road near Lapeer. One by one, 60-inch diameter pipes are dropped in the hole and the link to Lake Huron is extended.
The 74-mile long pipeline will stretch from the shore of the lake to Genesee County. There are less than eight miles of pipeline left to lay.
Jeff Wright is the Genesee County Drain Commissioner, as well as the chief executive officer of the Karegnondi Water Authority.
