Bryan Water Work Underway

The Bryan Water Depart­ment has begun replac­ing the water main on Parkview Avenue. The depart­ment is upgrad­ing the exist­ing 4-inch cast iron pipe to 8-inch main in the 600 to 800 blocks of Parkview Ave. They will also replace the exist­ing fire hydrant and add another one.

Accord­ing to the depart­ment, the project is part of the pro­gres­sion of work on the west side to replace all the old 4-inch

water mains.

The BMU water crew closed the street and started saw cut­ting the pave­ment on July 11. They tapped into the 8-inch main on Avenue A and laid the first sec­tion of new pipe on Mon­day, and say they will con­tinue work­ing east to Lebanon Street in the first phase of the project.

The project is bro­ken into two phases to accom­mo­date the Ohio Lit­tle League State Cham­pi­onship that will be held at Garver Park at the end of this month. Fol­low­ing the tour­na­ment, the crew will begin phase two from Lebanon to Blakeslee Avenue. They expect to fin­ish the first phase in three weeks and the sec­ond phase by early Sep­tem­ber.

In all, the water depart­ment will install 986 feet of new water main, new water ser­vices to 15 homes, 15 new meters, and two new fire hydrants. Cost of the project is esti­mated to be about $162,000. Once com­pleted, they say the res­i­dents will have bet­ter reli­a­bil­ity and fire protection.
