Fort Madison To Extend Water Main

Fort Madison, IA – The Fort Madison city council has agreed to extend a water main to Industrial Tooling and Fabrication. City Manager Bill Kelly says the company plans to construct a 32,000 square foot addition to its facility. He says the extension is needed because the company will have to add a sprinkler system and the current line is not strong enough to handle the increased water need. The water main extension will cost about $385,000 and could be finished by October.
