This water system distribution project is along Main Street (VA-30) between 18th Street and 23rd Street. This project included the installation of new 6-inch and 4-inch waterlines, fire hydrants, valves, fittings, appurtenances, and water services, along with incidental trenching, excavation, grading, erosion control, pavement milling and overlays, and project site restoration.

This project was identified as a needed distribution system improvement. The improvements replaced a problematic and aging existing 8-inch diameter ductile iron pipe located along Main Street (VA-30). The system improvements provided additional fire hydrants for firefighting needs along the service area and will reduce the number of line breaks requiring repair and disrupting water service along Main Street (VA-30). The project provided new water service lines addressing prior Lead Service Line Replacement Requirement.


The project bids were opened on October 23, 2023, and the project was awarded to Walter C. Via Enterprises, Inc. for the lump sum amount of $975,000.00 with a total of 180 days (about 6 months) to complete the project following the issuance of a Notice to Proceed. Work began on the 400 block of 18th Street on Tuesday, January 16, 2024. Visit our project web page for additional details.
