Capital Region Water BEGINS Drinking Water main improvement project


HARRISBURG (April 8, 2019): Capital Region Water is kicking off a $1,000,000 drinking water main improvement project this week in the locations listed below. This project will install 1,400 feet of new drinking water mains to improve water quality, service reliability, and flow for fire protection in the City of Harrisburg, Penbrook Borough, and Susquehanna Township.


“This project is part of Capital Region Water’s proactive capital improvement strategy to provide safe and reliable drinking water service while reducing long-term operational costs,” said Capital Region Water CEO Charlotte Katzenmoyer. “We thank our customers who live or work near these project locations for their patience and understanding while these improvements are made.”


Potential impacts of this construction include: street closures, parking restrictions, construction noise, temporary water service interruptions, and temporary roadway patches until final restoration can be completed, typically 90 days after temporary patching. Construction hours will be 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. This project will not require access to customers’ homes. Additional details will be provided to properties near the project locations in advance through door-to-door outreach.
