Moore Arboretum Update in Blue Stem Ridge

It is upon rare occasion that Moore and OKC are able to works things out which involves both parties…as they are usually fussing over annexations for tax dollars.  Thank goodness for exceptions to the rule! 

OKC will go ahead and bring the 48 inch water main down another 1000 feet to the creek that borders between the Arboretum and Bluestem.  Completion of the installation of this last 1000 feet will allow Moore to work on the drainage from the ponds that have been created in Arboretum as well as from our neighborhood.  This will mark the beginning of the installation of the Moore Arboretum!

The water main for the mile between Telephone Road and Santa Fe will occur in 3 phases.  The first phase will be from the corner of Telephone Road and 34th sometime around mid October to early November.  Once this initial portion has  been completed the water main will end right about 1000 feet east of the creek that runs between Bluestem and the Arboretum. 

The additional 1000 foot of pipe for this second phase  has been ordered.  Manufacturing and delivery of the pipe may take up to 6-8 weeks at best.  This should allow  the installation of phase two, which will go through the Arboretum sometime in December.  

The third installation on this mile will not begin until 2009.  See the following article regarding this part of the installation.  I hope this is of great interest and a large sigh of relief  to those living in Blue Stem bordering 34th.  I will keep you posted
