The original cast iron water main within the project area was installed in 1963 and has experienced repeated main breaks over the years. To continue to ensure the reliability of our system, SPRWS regularly replaces aging infrastructure that may be susceptible to breaking with newer, more dependable infrastructure.
SPRWS will be hiring a contractor to replace the existing 6" cast iron water main with 8" HDPE pipe using a method called pipe bursting.
- Replace 1,350 ft of 6" water main
