2018 Water Main Replacement Projects  

To improve the reliability of our system, MWW replaced an unprecedented 18 miles of water mains in 2018. These projects were determined according to an index we've developed that ranks the condition of each segment of main and its likelihood of failutre. In some cases, water main projects are moved up the list so they are completed prior to a street paving project or major development.We notify property owners in advance of these projects providing "what to expect" and information about parking during construction. The construction season runs from April into December, weather permitting.

Water mains are made of cast iron, not lead. The service line connecting the main to the meter may be made of lead. Only approximately one mile of water main was replaced in 2018 that was directly connected to 110 lead service lines. In these cases, the lead service lines were replaced with copper during the main replacement projects.

Search our records to see if your service line is made of lead.shovel and construction cone image
