Pennsylvania American Water announced the start of construction to replace approximately 4.5 miles of aging water main in Lawrence County to improve service reliability and fire protection for residents.

The project will cost approximately $4.5 million.

“This year, we are investing approximately $4.5 million to replace aging pipeline in our Lawrence County system to help ensure reliable water service and fire protection for our customers for years to come,” Pennsylvania American Water Senior Manager of Operations Toni Colavecchia stated.

These pipeline replacement projects are in addition to the 19-mile Castlewood-area water line extension project, which started construction in August 2017. The company expects the project to be completed and service available to Castlewood residents by early summer.

The $10.5-million service extension will provide service to more than 700 households. It includes the construction of a 300,000-gallon storage tank, pressure-reducing station and more than 100 fire hydrants.

The pipeline upgrades will begin in late-April with the replacement of aging water mains along Meadowland Avenue in Ellwood City. Over the next several months, the company plans to replace aging water main in the following area of Lawrence County:

Ellwood City
