July 29, 20192019 AC Watermain Replacement Project Notification

August 16, 20192019 AC Watermain Replacement Project Update #1

The District’s Water Main Replacement Project started Monday, August 12th. The projects consist of installing over 4,900ft of new 8” Ductile Iron waterline, along with fire hydrants, new water services, meters and boxes. The project is expected to take approximately 2 ½ months to complete. The project will replace aging and undersized 4 inch and 6 inch water mains at the end of their useful lifecycle. By increasing the sizes to 8 inch, the District will be able to supply on an average of 500 gallons a minute more fire flow capabilities in the area.

The project location is on the North side of Lake Meridian. The District’s contractor KarVel Construction started Phase #1 of the project on Monday, August 12th. Phase #1 began at the intersection of 144th AVE SE and SE 262nd Street. Water main construction will proceed West on SE 262nd St, then South on 143rd AVE SE, then West on SE 264th St, then North on 142nd AVE SE and end at SE 260th Street.

As of right now, the contractor has completed laying the watermain southerly in 143rd Ave SE down to the intersection of SE 264th St. The contractor will not be working the week of August 19th, resuming the morning of Monday, August 26th at the intersection of 143rd Ave SE and SE 264th St., proceeding West on SE 264th St, then North on 142nd Ave SE until reaching the intersection of SE 260th St. A project map of this phase showing the route and schedule is also on the District’s website. Customers will be notified a day in advance before the construction reaches the street in front of your property. This will allow coordination and access to and from your house during the short construction window.

In order to provide better communication and minimize the impact on you, our customers, we will be providing Construction Project Updates every Friday afternoon during the course of construction. This is Construction Project Update #1. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the District office at (253) 631-3770, myself, General Manager Chris Hall at (206) 793-5016, or Operations Superintendent Brent Lewis at (253) 495-8994.

I want to thank you in advance for your patience during this construction as we try to better serve you by providing newer more reliable water service and increased water line sizes which provides your service area greater water supply for fire flow capacity.
