Water Main Replacement Project in Water Street and Main Street, Warren
The BCWA installed a new 12” water main to connect the 24” pipe that crosses under the Warren River with the 12” pipe on the Barrington-Warren Bridge. The new 12” main replaced a cast iron 8” main constructed before 1935. The larger main provides increased flow and fire protection in the north Warren neighborhoods and will provide for a backup supply from Barrington should the main under the river ever fail.
This project also included the installation of a control valve on our water main near the Warren Bridge, to allow for water to be pumped from Barrington to Warren in an emergency.
