Thompson Ave. Water Main Replacement

The original cast iron water main within the project area was installed in 1958. 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 a combination of 6” and 8” HDPE pipe via a trenchless method called pipe bursting.

Work on Thompson Ave is in the final stages. Approximately 75 feet of pipe need to be installed near the Robert Street intersection. After the water main is fully installed, SPRWS will continue to work reconnecting services and the disturbed portions of the roadway will be paved.
