New sewer and water mains for Parkesburg

americanwaterpaCOATESVILLE — Pennsylvania American Water announced this week the start of construction to install new water and sewer mains in Parkesburg Borough to improve service reliability and increase water flows for firefighting. The approximately $850,000 project will replace nearly 1,400 feet of aging water and sewer pipe, including outdated water main that dates back to the 1920s.

Starting this week, crews will install the new pipe along Main Street between Culvert and West Bridge streets. Weather permitting, the company expects to complete the water and sewer line installation and service connections by the end of this year, with final paving restoration scheduled for early spring 2017.

Construction is scheduled for weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 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.
