Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The City of Twin Falls has reopened the road to Auger Falls.
The road had been closed since May due to the Auger Falls Pipeline Project.
A large pipeline was installed under the road, allowing for treated wastewater to be distributed to Auger Falls.
The water would otherwise be discharged in the Snake River, and now will be used to develop wetland habitats.
Dennis Bowyer, director of Twin Falls Parks and Recreation, reminds drivers to use caution in the area.
“A lot of the work on the road has been done. The pipeline has been put in there. The road is a little wider. So still remind people to drive slowly because we will have a lot of walkers, runners, people on bicycles,” Bowyer explains.
The pipeline was built to deliver up to 6 million gallons of treated wastewater.
Some work is still ongoing and the city asks the public to be cautious around equipment and workers.
