Drinking Water Distribution System: Cameron Street Water Main – Phase 4
One of CRW’s most challenging sections of the distribution system lies in Cameron Street. This is due to the expense and challenging environment for construction. Cameron Street’s heavy trucking and commuter traffic loads require heavy traffic control and limited construction periods, and the roadway is a deep, reinforced concrete cartway that creates expensive restoration requirements. Rehabilitation and replacement of the water main in Cameron Street will occur in phases.
Replace a portion of the 1880s cast iron water main and replace isolation valves.
This phase of the project will rehabilitate approximately 3,500 LF of 20-inch cast-iron water main and 1,700 LF of associated connecting pipes between State St. and Mulberry St. Service lines and fire hydrants will also be replaced. This portion of Cameron St. is a concrete cartway which makes rehabilitation a more cost-effective approach than replacement due to the high cost of concrete road restoration. Rehabilitation via cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is the preferred method.
The project will be financed by PENNVEST.
