May 30, 2023: As of May 30, the installation of the new water line has been successfully completed along Law Street, from Academy to Community, as well as down Fairmont from Law to Albans.

We are moving forward with the next crucial step in the project. Hydrostatic testing of the newly installed lines will take place shortly. This testing is necessary to ensure the integrity and reliability of the infrastructure. In addition to hydrostatic testing, water samples will also be taken and tested prior to connecting residential service lines and putting the new water line into operation to ensure safety. 

Once the hydrostatic testing is completed successfully, we will connect the residential service lines and activate the new water line onto West U’s system, providing you with an improved and more efficient water system. Residents will be notified when the connection is expected to take place.

We understand the significance of a reliable water supply, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation throughout this project.
