The original cast iron water main within the project area was installed in 1924. It has suffered repeated breaks over the years and has exceeded its useful life.
SPRWS crews along with Quam Construction Co. will replace the existing 6” cast iron water main with 8” HDPE pipe via a trenchless method called pipe bursting.
This project is expected to begin in September of 2019.

The water main is installed on Kennard Street. Additional work will take place in the next few weeks to connect services, remove temporary water, and pave the disturbed portions of the roadway.
