Planned and emergency projects to keep Arlington’s water and sewer infrastructure strong.

2017 Water Main Renewals

Click on map to enlarge.

This project includes the replacement of approximately 21,000 feet of 6-inch and 8-inch water mains in various Arlington locations by the pipe bursting method. The construction method involves pipe bursting the existing 6-inch or 8-inch water main while pulling a new 8-inch main through the existing pipe. The process is trenchless and requires limited excavation which minimizes construction time and disruption to customers. These improvements will replace aging infrastructure with a history of water main breaks which will reduce maintenance costs and improve service to this area.
