2022 Water Main Replacement Project Underway

UPDATE, 11/23/2022
Beginning Monday, November 28, crews will be working on the tie-in of the new water main on West Pomfret with the Borough's existing water main on South College Street. The existing water mains are located on the east side of the intersection. Expect lane closures between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

UPDATE, 11/07/22: 
Beginning Tuesday, November 8, crews will begin work on replacing the water main under West Pomfret Street from South College Street to South Pitt Street. They will then head east to work on West Street.

A significant portion of the Borough's water distribution lines are aging and have either exceeded or are approaching the end of their typical service life. The Borough plans to replace one to two miles of old cast iron water distribution main each year to ensure Borough residents have a clean and reliable water system for generations to come.

The next phase includes portions of the following streets: North West, Lincoln, Cherry, West Louther, West Pomfret, Porter Avenue, East Louther, and East Mulberry Avenue. These areas represent the portions of the Borough where the most water main breaks occurred. In addition to replacing water mains, the project also involves replacing older water valves, hydrants, air release valves, and water service lines in the area with new materials. The streets will be milled and repaved after the water line replacement.

Work began the week of October 24. Crews will be starting in the area of East Louther Street. Residents in the area have received letters informing them of the work.

This work will require the temporary closure of sections of Borough streets and limits on-street parking as the work progresses. The contractor will install "No Parking" signs during the work, as needed, and provide flaggers to direct traffic through the active construction site at locations where the street is not actively closed.
