MD247 Loveville Road Water Main Replacement – Phase 1

New water main locations and properties affected by Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the project.

Background – Greenbrier Water Storage Tank

The existing system (known as the King Kennedy Water System) was built in the 1970’s as an independent stand-alone water system to serve King Kennedy Estates and the Loveville Acres residential developments.  MetCom subsequently assumed ownership and operation of this system, which serves approximately 63 properties.  Although only 50 years old (useful life is approximately 65 years for cement pipe), the water mains do not meet current MetCom specifications, are undersized and have ongoing maintenance issues.   Additionally, due to the line sizes, the fire hydrants are inoperable. 

Project Scope of Work

Phase 1:

Phase 1 of this project will affect customers inside the King Kennedy Subdivision on a portion of Independence Drive, Weber Street, and along the south side of MD247 from 26370 Loveville Road southwest to Independence Drive. This project will replace the existing 2”, 4”, and 8” diameter water lines with approximately 3,150 linear feet of 8” water main, new fire hydrants, and 22 new house connections to existing properties. Project construction is expected to start in Summer 2024.
