On March 5th, Aqua will begin replacing the existing water main on New Street in Glenside. The project is expected to be completed in May. The work will typically take place on week days between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m..
After the new water main is installed, there will be a period of time in which the main will be chlorinated and tested. This is essential before being put into service.
Once this phase begins, activity on the job site will be limited.
When the testing is completed, Aqua will transfer each water service and any fire hydrants onto the new main.
Please take note that the trench will be covered with temporary black top at the end of each work day. Once all of the activity described above is finished, permanent restoration will follow in about 30 to 60 days.
Access will be provided for emergency, mail, school buses and trash services. All residents will have access to their properties yet they might need to enter from a different direction due to changing work zones.
