Allen Avenue Main Replacement

Project Engineer: Kaitlin Swanson 651-266-6289

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.

Project Scope:

  • Replace 1,350 ft of 6" water main
  • Replace valves and hydrants
  • Restore street pavement as needed

Project Updates

Project is complete. As part of the restoration efforts for the project, a mill and overlay will occur in the spring of 2022. Impacted customers will receive further information and mailings as the project is closer to beginning.
