Engineers submit new numbers for 200 bypass levee

Ulteig Engineer Stephen Hoetzer had some good news for the Mercer County Water Resource Board and Hazen residents last Thursday afternoon.

Unfortunately, bad news followed on its heels.

The good news? Hazen’s western portion of Main Street will likely not be considered a dike according to Ulteig’s hydrology study, which means it wouldn’t be subject to requirements set for accredited levees.
