2019 Water Main Replacement Project
The Morrisville Municipal Authority (Authority) is replacing water mains in 2019.
The project will include installation of new 8” ductile iron pipe (DIP) water main on Union Street, Centre Street, 200 block of East Palmer Ave. and Hillside Ave. to Delmorr Ave.. We are also installing 200 feet of 8″ water main on Decou Drive to West Trenton Ave.. This project includes various upgrades to the water system on Trenton Ave., North Delmorr Ave. and West Bridge Street.
Water mains have been installed on Decou Drive and Union Street. Contractors are presently installing water main on Centre Street. Once all water mains have been installed, sterilized and complete bacteria testing, contractors will begin connecting water services to the new mains. After all connections are made, contractors will complete tie-ins and abandon the old water mains.
We will try to minimize your inconvenience, but the project will involve street excavation and the use of heavy construction equipment. During construction, please help by observing the
- Daily work hours will typically be 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., subject to weather and holiday scheduling.
- Until construction and street repairs are completed, do not park on your street during active construction hours. If your vehicle is in the way, it may be towed. The contractor is required to fill all excavations at the end of each day, and you may park on your street at the end of each work day, conditions permitting.
During construction, there may be short periods of disruption of service, reduced pressure, or discoloration of water. We will do our best to notify residents prior to any disruption.
When completed, this project will replace aging 4” cast iron pipe and a dead end line that will improve fire protection in the area and help prevent future disruptions of service.
