Summer is here and that means the start of water line construction season in northeast Ohio.
Starting this week are projects near Highland Circle in Ashtabula, along Sheldon Avenue in Kingsville Township and a project west of Cemetery Road in Saybrook Township, Aqua Ohio, Inc. officials said in a press release Tuesday.
The Highland Circle project will install 1,750 feet of new 8-inch iron water line to replace an existing 2-inch water line for Aqua’s customers along Highland Circle and West Eighth Street, between Arlington and Union streets.
In Saybrook Township, 1,400 feet of new 8-inch iron water main with three new fire hydrants will be placed where no water serviceexists along the west side of Cemetery Road, from Wade Avenue north.
In Kingsville Township, 850 feet of new 8-inch polyvinyl chloride water main will be installed on the east side of Sheldon Avenue, from East Main Street north to Creek Road, to replace a much smaller water line in service.
All work is scheduled to be done by mid-August.
The projects total $400,000 and are part of Aqua’s capital improvement plan to enhance reliability of service to area customers, said Tony Mancari, area manager.
Aqua bought Ohio American Water on May 1, and now serves 144,000 customers in 16 counties in Ohio.
