Aqua Pennsylvania is replacing a water main on Joshua Road from Cannon Hill Road to Stenton Avenue. Work will be completed around May 30.
Construction will generally take place weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. During times of construction access will be provided for emergency, mail and trash service. Residents will have access to their properties, but at times will need to enter from different directions due to changing work zones. Following installation, the new main will be flushed, chlorinated and tested for water quality before being placed into service. During the chlorination/testing phase, activity on the job site will be limited. Once the water quality testing has been completed, we will transfer each water service and fire hydrant to the new main. When all final connections are made to mains on side streets, the old main will abandoned. It is important to note the trench will be covered with temporary blacktop at the end of each workday.
The project is part of Aqua's continuing infrastructure improvement program that replaced more than 17 miles of aging main in Montgomery County in 2023 to improve service reliability for customers. The new water main will reduce the potential for main breaks and discolored water and improve water flow in the area.
