KUB regularly communicates with customers and the community about major utility projects through news releases, construction letters to residents, and signs in the construction area. When there is particular interest about a project in an area, we may also have public meetings.
This page offers additional information, such as fact sheets, news releases, or maps, for some long-term major projects that may be of interest to the community. If you have questions or would like to make comments on a project, you can e-mail email@example.com or call 524-2911.
