Progress Report – New Water Main in Metacom Avenue

The new water mains in Metacom Avenue and Carr Lane have been tested and connected to our system. Connections to the side streets is ongoing and will be complete in the next two weeks. The Contractor will now be transferring homeowners who were attached to the aboveground bypass piping to the new mains.

New piping at the Metacom/Tupelo Street intersection will be installed this week. Expect traffic delays at that intersection Tuesday through Friday.
