Town Creek Water Main Replacement Phase 5

Background

With phases 1 and 2 now completed, this Project will be the next phase designed and built, as a part of the multi-phase Town Creek Water System Replacement project. Phase 5 will precede phases 3 & 4 in order to address areas of higher maintenance and repair history. The Town Creek Water System was originally built in the 1950s as a stand-alone water system. MetCom subsequently assumed ownership and operation of these water mains and incorporated them into the greater Lexington Park Water System. The undersized water mains do not meet current MetCom specifications, are over 60 years old, and are reaching the end of their useful life (approximately 70 years for cement lined pipe). The distribution system in Town Creek currently serves approximately 360 customers

Project Scope of Work

This Project will replace existing water mains ranging in size from 2 to 4 inches in diameter, consisting of various materials and located on both public and private property. New 8-inch diameter (PVC) watermains will be installed within the public road right of way.  The limits of Phase 5 design extend from Town Creek Elementary School to the end of Town Creek Drive, the entirety of East Sunrise Drive, River Hill Road, and River Road.  (see the above Town Creek Phases exhibit). Construction for a portion of the design (see Phase 4/5 above) will be budget dependent.
