Aqua Pennsylvania will be replacing the existing 6-inch and 8-inch cast iron mains on the following streets:
Ashland Avenue, from East 7th Street to East 9th Street
Ashland Avenue, from East 10th Street to House #1022 Ashland Avenue
Lawrence Avenue, from Eddystone Avenue to Ashland Avenue
The project is scheduled to begin the week of March 28, 2016. Completion of the pipe installation is expected in May, at which time the new mains will be tested and chlorinated. Permanent road restoration will be completed in July.
Construction activity will typically take place between 7 AM to 5 PM. Access will be provided for emergency, mail and trash services. Residents will have access to their property, but at times will need to enter from different directions due to changing work zones.
Aqua is undertaking this $297,000.00 project to increase service reliability; reduce the potential for discolored water; and improve fire-fighting capabilities in the area.
