Construction to start on water main
Pennsylvania American Water Company said it will be starting to replace an aging water main in Connellsville and throughout other areas in Fayette County.
The water main to be replaced in Connellsville is located along Second Street, West Washington Avenue, Trump Avenue, East Green Street, North Water Street and South Water Street.
Pennsylvania American Water said the project will include construction on more than a mile of aging water main in Fayette County.
The cost of the system improvements throughout the county is approximately $1.1 million.
“These projects are necessary to provide increased water service reliability by replacing outdated mains that date back to the early 1900s,” said William McFaddin, Pennsylvania American Water's operations superintendent.
Weather permitting, the company expects to complete pipe installation, service connection tie-ins and final paving restoration by the end of 2013.
During construction, customers might experience temporary service interruptions, discolored water and/or lower-than-normal water pressure. Crews will work as quickly as possible to shorten the length of these temporary inconveniences. For more information, call Pennsylvania American Water's customer service center at 800-565-7292.
