Capital Region Water BEGINS $700,000 SEWER REPLACEMENT PROJECT

PROJECT RENEWS AGING UNDERGROUND INFRASTRUCTURE

 

HARRISBURG (December 12, 2017): Capital Region Water will kick off a $700,000 sewer replacement project next week. This project will repair over 800 feet of aging and broken sewer mains and manholes at five different locations in Harrisburg.

 

“Every business, office, and resident in Harrisburg relies on our sewer system every day,” said Capital Region Water Board Chairman Marc Kurowski. “These critical repairs will help ensure reliable wastewater service for the next several decades.”

 

Project Location Estimated Timeline Notes
South 13th Street between Market Street and Howard Street Mid-December – Early January New manhole, 18 feet of new sewer pipe.
Cameron Street and Market Street End of December – End of January Spray on concrete liner, slip line 18 inch sewer pipe.
Magnolia Street between Cameron Street and 12th Street Early January – End of January New manhole on Cameron Street, cured in place pipe lining.
Derry Street between 13th Street and 14th Street Mid-January –  End of January New manhole, 13 feet of pipe, cured in place pipe lining.
Fulton and Hamilton Street Mid-January – End of January New manhole connection

Potential impacts of this construction include: street closures, parking restrictions, construction noise, and temporary sewer service interruptions. When the pipe replacement is complete, the road will be temporarily patched until final street restoration is completed in the spring of 2018.

 

Construction hours will be 7:00 AM – 5:00PM, Monday through Friday. This project will not require access to customers’ homes. Additional details will be provided to affected properties in advance of the start of work through door-to-door outreach.   Capital Region Water will also have a representative on site during construction working hours.

 

Customers with questions can contact Capital Region Water by phone at 888-510-0606 or by email at info@capitalregionwater.com.
