Project Description

This project involves the installation of new water main from Glenview Road to the South, removal of existing sanitary to be replaced with new, some storm sewer installation and the reconstruction of the road.

The water main installation started on Thursday. The water main is being installed by a method call Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD). In this method, a reamer is used to push a tunnel through the ground. Then the pipe is pulled through/into this tunnel. This process will be done in two sections due to the length of the main. Once the pipe is installed, the contractor comes back and installs the valves (which turn the water on and off), fire hydrants and water services.
