Pennsylvania American Water Announces Water Line Replacement Project i...

Mechanicsburg, Pa. (Sept. 20, 2021) - Today, Pennsylvania American Water announced upgrades to approximately 4,300 feet of water main in Limerick Township to improve reliability for customers, reduce service disruptions, and increase water flows for firefighting. The cost of the system improvements, which replace water main dating back to the 1960s, is $1,400,000.

The project, which is scheduled to begin on September 22, includes replacing existing pipe with new 12-inch ductile iron main along North Lewis Road between Royersford Road and Pine Tree Road in Limerick Township. Crews will work weekdays between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Traffic restrictions will be in place during construction. The company expects to complete the water main installation and connect all customer service lines to the new main by the end of November. Final restoration and paving will be completed by the township as part of a storm sewer project by spring 2022.

During construction, customers might experience temporary service interruptions, discolored water, and/or lower than normal water pressure. Crews will work as quickly as possible to shorten the length of these temporary inconveniences. For more information, contact Pennsylvania American Water's customer service center at 1-800-565-7292.
