What's ahead for January

Dec. 21, 2023

Work is complete on the North Street Transmission main project. The line has been fully connected and is in operations. We thank you for your support of this project over the past year.    

Galvanized main replacements

Work also continues on the BJWSA galvanized water main replacement program. The portion of the current project within the City limits is completed. However, construction continues in the Port Royal vicinity. This is a multi-year program aimed at improving water quality in older areas of the water system where there are galvanized water mains. The next phase of this work will be in the Pigeon Point neighborhood where construction is anticipated to start in the new calendar year. Work includes installing new PVC water mains, fire hydrants, water services, and meter boxes. The replacement of water service lines to customers is provided only to the meter. Once the lines are replaced, there should be notable water quality and water pressure improvements.  

Other projects 

BJWSA will be upgrading a select number of pump stations throughout the service area. On Mondays, we have a contractor who will be replacing service lines and meters in the downtown area. This contractor starts early in the morning and is scheduled to have work completed by the end of business each Monday. This was was on hold during the holidays but will now resume until downtown business services have been replaced. 

BJWSA also has an annual hydrant replacement program to replace older hydrants. These hydrant replacements are randomly located throughout the City and should have little impact on daily activities of the citizens. New hydrants will assist the flushing of the water system and be ready for use in the event of an emergency.
