Lenore Street Water Main Replacement
The project will take approximately 2 weeks to complete. There are 4 main tasks to complete the work
1. Install new water main valves at the intersection of Paradise and Garfield Streets. It will
require closing several valves to isolate the work area and stop water flow. Customers on W.
Paradise, Garfield and Lenore will experience water service disruptions. It will take
approximately 6 to 8 hours on the first day of the project to install the valves, tentatively
scheduled for March 13 th .
2. Excavate trench and lay new 6 inch water main on Garfield and Lenore Streets from Paradise
Street to McGill Street (3 to 4 days). After the connection is completed, the new main will be
chlorinated, tested, and then flushed.
3. Move existing service lines from the old 4 inch main to the new 6 inch water main. Each
customer will lose water service for 1 to 2 hours as it is reconnected to the new main. (3 to 4
4. Sever and decommission old main from the system. The old main must be disconnected from
the system after all the water services are switched to the new main. It will require a section
on McGill Street to be isolated and lose water service for 4 to 6 hours.
The remaining road and landscape repair will be completed later when the weather conditions allow
for final street coating and landscape grading. Please direct any questions to the Water Treatment
