Cast Iron Waterline Replacement Project Package B

The City has identified cast iron waterlines throughout the City that require replacement. The pre-1939 cast iron pipes are nearing the end of their expected service life. These pipes are susceptible to failure causing unnecessary disruption to residents, water waste, and an increased cost of repairs. The City’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) includes the Cast Iron Water Line Replacement Program project which includes design and construction to replace cast iron waterlines over the upcoming years.
