Cameron Street Water Main Lining Project

By | July 26, 2018

The Cameron Street water main is a 12-inch diameter drinking water main built in 1884. Capital Region Water is renewing this pipe to reduce water main breaks and provide safe, reliable drinking water service for years to come.

This project will rehabilitate 2,340 feet of 12-inch diameter water, 50 feet of 8-inch diameter pipe, and 300 feet of 6-inch diameter pipe along Cameron Street between Calder Street and Goodwill Street.

Cured-in-place pipe will be installed inside the existing water main pipe to create a new, structurally sound pipe. This is a cost-effective and reliable alternative designed to minimize inconvenience to customers rather than excavating and replacing the water main located in the center of Cameron Street.

Project Summary:
Pipes providing temporary water service will be placed above ground along the side of Cameron Street in the project area. These pipes will be buried below surface at driveways and road crossings. Each customer’s drinking water line and fire line in the project area will be connected to this system of pipes to maintain water service throughout the project. This temporary water service will result in reduced fire flow. Temporary fire hydrants will also be installed in the project area.

Estimated Project Timeline:
Work will begin in August. A more detailed schedule will be provided prior to work beginning.

Customer Impacts:

  • The contractor will need to coordinate with each customer to connect to the temporary water system.
  • Customers will lose water service for a short period of time while they are connected to the temporary water system.
  • Customers will remain connected to this temporary water system throughout the duration of the project.
  • There will be temporary lane closures and traffic control on Cameron Street throughout the duration of the project.
  • There will be construction traffic and noise during working hours.
