Starting next week, a contractor for the City of Pocatello will be drilling a test water well near Gate City Elementary School.
The week of October 9 the contractor will begin drilling the well on the southeast corner of the school’s playing fields, near the intersection of Butte Street and Douglas Street. During construction, the worksite will contain construction materials as well as equipment and will be fenced and secured by the contractor. Officials would like to remind parents to discuss the dangers of construction sites with their children and direct them to avoid entering the worksite. Access to the schoolyard will still be available at the corner of Butte Street and Douglas Street.
Construction is anticipated to last for approximately three weeks. Due to unforeseen circumstances or inclement weather, this schedule may be altered.
Officials would like to thank residents for their cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience the work may cause.
Residents with questions about the project can contact the City of Pocatello Engineering Department at 208-234-6225.
