Preparing for New Water System

The town of Coushatta is beginning a major upgrade of the water system.  Mayor Johnny Cox told the Journal that pipe and other supplies are being stockpiled prior to work beginning.

The upgrade is a $7,000,000+ project funded by loans and grants the town has been working on securing for the past couple of years.  Mayor Cox said this is just the first stage.  The pipe is being stored at the Coushatta Community Center (the old trade school) in the industrial park.

Soon construction will begin to replace all of Coushatta’s old water lines.  The system has needed a major upgrade for years.  Cox said everything is being lined up for the construction to begin.
