The original cast iron water main within the project area was installed in 1905 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 8" cast iron water main with 8" HDPE pipe using a method called pipe bursting.
- Replace 1,100 ft of 8" water main
- Replace valves and hydrants
- Restore street pavement as needed
Contractor will be performing pre-work in the project area to prepare for project start later in the construction season. Specific start dates to be determined.

Project is in progress. Work is expected to continue for several weeks.
