About the Project

Approximately 2,000 linear feet of new 12” water main will be constructed as part of the Cross Gates Water Distribution project. This temporary disruption of services is required to install the necessary valves and fittings to allow the new 12” water main to be tied in to the Cross Gates water system.

Once complete, residents will experience an overall improved quality of life as the Project will enhance domestic and fire flow of the water distribution system for the homes located nearby.
