While there have also been stormwater investments in Old Town, the Virginia American Water upgrades are focused more on the consumer-end of reliable water service. According to the press release, the new water pipes will increase reliability, allowing for better water flows into households and improving fire protection.
“This project is part of Virginia American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of aging water infrastructure to our communities throughout the state,” the press release said. “The company will invest $1.2M to upgrade aging 6-inch and 8-inch water lines with new, 12-inch ductile iron main…”
The upgraded water main will run along South Washington Street from Gibbon Street to Prince Street.
Work is scheduled to start on Monday, Oct. 18, and is expected to be finished by the end of May next year, with street restorations finishing up later that summer. The press release noted that work will run from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday, with work outside those hours not expected unless needed to stay on schedule. During those hours, S. Washington Street will likely have lane closures in both directions.
A virtual session about the project is scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, at 7 p.m.
