Parks Chief Eager to Get Water to Pettibone

Making do with the water from a well was well and good enough for decades at La Crosse's Pettibone Park. Not anymore. Water and sewer lines were sent under the Mississippi from the park to the rest of the city a couple years ago and now the park department is looking to tap in.


City park and rec director Steve Carlyon says he wants to get water to the bath house as well as pavilions.  Also, having park facilities hooked up to city sewer will save on the expense of emptying holding tanks multiple times during the summer. 

 The boat club at the south end of the park is also looking at hooking up to the city water and sewer lines.
