Water Main Replacement in Metacom Avenue, Bristol
The BCWA replaced water mains in Metacom Avenue, from Bay View Avenue north to Robin Drive during the summer of 2016. The project involved replacing approximately 4500 feet of old 8” pipe with 12” diameter new ductile iron pipe. As a result, the high pressure zone was expanded to include the neighborhoods shown below, and fire protection throughout the high pressure zone was increased. The cost was $1,800,000 and included engineering design and inspection, the contractor’s fee to install the new pipe, paving and police protection during construction.
