Old Orchard - Lawn and Carleton Avenues
About the Project:
This water main replacement project will replace over 1,000 feet of old, undersized iron water main installed in the early 1900s and 1950s on Lawn and Carelton Avenues. The existing pipe has experienced multiple breaks in the past that have interrupted service and caused other issues. The existing pipe will be replaced with 8-inch, 4-inch and 2-inch water main. The project will include renewal of customer service connections.
Maine Water intends for the new water main to be placed beside the existing water main while the existing remains in service throughout construction. Once the new water main has been disinfected and passed testing the customer services will be transferred to the new water main.
The contract for this project will be awarded soon.
- This project has been awarded to Bowdoin Excavation, LLC out of North Yarmouth.
- No planned start date has been announced.
