New water mains planned for 1st Avenue

AmericanWaterPACOATESVILLE — Pennsylvania American Water today announced the start of new water main installation in the City of Coatesville to improve service reliability, prevent water outages and enhance fire protection. The projects will replace nearly 1,850 feet of aging pipe dating back to the 1940s, at a combined cost of approximately $400,000.

Starting this week, crews will install eight-inch ductile iron pipe along South 1st Avenue between Oak Street and Modena Road. Weather permitting, the water line installation, service connections and final paving restoration are expected to be completed by the end of July.

Construction is scheduled for weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Traffic restrictions will be in place during construction hours, and motorists are urged to give themselves extra time while traveling through the area or find alternate routes.

During construction, customers might experience temporary water service interruptions, discolored water and/or lower than normal water pressure. For more information, contact Pennsylvania American Water’s customer service centre at 1-800-565-7292.
