The Water Bureau is planning to replace 4,800 feet—just under a mile—of an aging water main (pipe) along SE Lambert and 19th Ave. The existing main was installed in 1927, and has had six breaks in the last ten years. The new pipe will reduce the frequency of breaks and improve water quality.
The project is currently being designed, and the design process will continue throughout 2019. Construction is expected to begin in 2021.
