Butternut/Holly Drives Watermain Replacement 2023

Project Status

Updates: 5/4/23 In conjunction with the water main replacement project, beginning Monday May 8th, temporary water service interruption may occur for properties located on Holly Drive and Butternut Drive

4/25/23 The Authority has awarded bids for the water main replacement to DOLI Construction Corporation, of Chalfont, PA.  Work is tentatively scheduled to begin on Thursday May 4th.  The work is expected to take two to three months.  General work hours are 7 AM to 5 PM Monday through Thursday.  There will be roadway parking restrictions during these hours.  Please note, that the road will be closed except to local traffic and school buses while work is underway.

Past Updates:

1/6/23 - The Authority will be replacing the water main and performing rehabilitation work on the sewer in your neighborhood. The Authority budgets annually for replacement/rehabilitation of aging infrastructure and this work is part of that ongoing program. The Authority has determined that the infrastructure in this area which was originally built in 1955 is in need of repair/replacement.  This contract has not yet been awarded. However, due to rising costs of materials, which will be rising yet again in 2023, the Authority has procured the piping for this work at the end of 2022 while we are awaiting bid quotes for the installation.  The piping material will be stored temporarily at our Maple Avenue Water Storage Tank location nearby until used by the selected contractor. We are anticipating the contract will be awarded shortly and that the construction work will be performed in the March/April time frame. Your water service will remain in place and in service via the existing water main until the new water main is completed. Water service to your home will not be impacted by this work except for the short period needed to move your service connection from the existing main to the new main.
