South Green Springs Water Main Replacement Scope

South Green Springs Water Main Replacement Project

by: John E. Powell, P.E., City Engineer

Water main improvements in the area south of City Hall will begin in August 2017. The work is necessary to replace aging infrastructure. Approximately 4,300 feet of 6 inch water main and 4,100 feet of 2 inch water main will be installed. Where possible, water lines will be installed by directional drill in order to minimize impacts to trees, sidewalks, driveways, roadways, and other infrastructure. The process consists of drilling a path at the desired location and depth, then pulling the water main into place. The contractor will coordinate with residents to assure access to their property and minimal disturbance to their water service.
