You may have noticed an area of trail closure near the water tank by North Mountain. It is for a ‘water boring’ project. Here is the official statement:

press release  
Boise, ID, 11/18/16 

SUEZ BEGINS PIPELINE PROJECT TO ENHANCE WATER SERVICE 
 
SUEZ officials announced today that a new water main connection will improve and ensure continued water service for customers in the North Mountain Road area.  The SUEZ Bluffs Connection Pipeline Project, that is scheduled to begin construction today, will connect the Bluffs and Arrowhead pressure zones with approximately ½ mile of 8inch and 12-inch water pipe. The project will also eliminate the need for the aging Bluffs Booster Station and costs associated with its operation and maintenance.  

“Whether we are investing in water mains here in Idaho or in other locations across North America, making sure that our customers have uninterrupted service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is our top priority,” said Greg Wyatt, vice president and general manager. 

Part of the work will include a directional bore to allow for installation of the pipe with minimal ground disturbance. During construction, access on a spur off the Who Now Loop Trail will be restricted to ensure public safety. The directional bore work and trail restriction will last approximately five weeks. After the main is installed, SUEZ’ contractor will restore any disturbed foothills area. 
 
We are thankful to residents in the area who may be impacted by the trail restriction and will work as quickly and safely as possible to complete the work.
