Warm weather is a time for Nevada’s Street Department to work on storm-water intake repairs around the community.
This week, work is taking place on two intakes along Q Avenue, one at 9th Street and one at 2nd Street.
In doing the work, Nevada’s Street Department employees use a form at the shop to make a concrete box. Tearing out the old concrete, setting the new box in place, and doing additional concrete work is a three-day process for each intake.
Street Superintendent Jeremy Rydl said the goal is “to do as many as we can this summer.”
If you see an intake in need of repair, notify the city by calling 515-382-5466 or message the City of Nevada, IA page on Facebook.
