Water mains being replaced

Enfield - posted May, 31 2013

The Connecticut Water Company today announced that work has begun on a water main replacement project on Washington Avenue, Pease Street, Grant Street, and Garden Street in Enfield. On June 3, 2013, Connecticut Water will begin replacing approximately 3,600 feet, or nearly three-quarters of a mile, of 60 to 92 year old water main. The pipe being replaced is galvanized steel and cast iron water main between 2- and 6-inches in diameter and it will be replaced with 8- inch ductile iron water main. The water main replacement project on Garden Street is being coordinated with road restoration work planned by the Town of Enfield. Installing the new water main prior to road restoration will reduce the risk that the newly restored road will need to be cut to repair a broken water main. Since the inception of the WICA program in 2007, Connecticut Water has invested $52.5 million and replaced nearly 56 miles of water main with an average age of 73 years. The Company owns 1,600 miles of water main across the state. Wood Construction from Somers, Connecticut, has been selected as the contractor for the project. The project completion is targeted for July, which is dependent on weather and other factors beyond the Company’s control. Customers living on the streets affected by the project have been mailed letters explaining how the work will affect their water service. Updates on this and other construction projects will be posted to the company’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ctwtr)Watermains to be replaced
