Water Resources

Completed Water Main Rehabilitation Projects

It is vital that we continually assess the water distribution system and identify mains that need to be updated.  New or relined mains reduce the change of future main breaks, increase fire flow capability and improve our long term water quality.  We utilize two different methods for water main rehabilitation: Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) relining and open dig replacement.  Open dig replacement is how these improvements were traditionally done, but we have found CIPP to be more cost effective and less disruptive to property owners and pedestrians.  However, there are times when replacement is the only option, like changing the diameter of the water main.  We have recently completed work on the following streets:  


      • Deforest Rd


      • North Prospect  St (North to Pearl)
      • Overlake Park (cul-de-sac)
      • Home Ave (Queen City Park to Batchelder)


      Institute Road (Campground to BHS Track)
