Project Type: Water Main, Pump House & Reservoir Installation


The existing water lines of an older residence had started corroding from the inside-out, and needed to be replaced—the water lines, expansion tank, reservoir, and related equipment had all past its serviceable life.


The water lines were excavated using earthmoving equipment, and the old 8-inch diameter lines were removed and discarded. In their place a new water main was installed, pressure tested, and backfilled once the pressure test had passed. in addition, the expansion and reservoir tanks on the system were replaced with current anti-corrosive components, featuring a new steel expansion tank with anti-corrosion liner and pre-pressurized bladder.


The project was a success, and the new water main allows for future expansion of the property without incurring expensive capital improvement costs.
