Water Work

City of Parsons workers Jeremy Teel (front) and Chris Gobin watch as Perry Davis files down to size an old water line in the 1400 block of Morgan Avenue on Thursday. The three planned to connect the old line with a newer PVC line at a 90-degree angle to temporarily provide water to the residences in the block until the new line is extended to 13th Street. The city will lay the new line after the street is torn up. After that, a new concrete street will be poured. A new street already has been poured in the 1500 block of Morgan, and Volmer Cement Finishing was working on the north curb Thursday after already building the south curb.
