Standard Procedure for New Water Main Installations
- The first task for any sub-surface service is to locate the city water main in the roadway. Generally, this will be on the same side as any city manholes or fire hydrants.
- After locating the city main, our contractors will break into the roadway and on part of the sidewalk, roadway, or your property.
- A three to five–foot hole is made in the two locations. This is where the majority of work will take place.
- Using a compressor, a small tunnel is made, connecting the two hole sites.
- The new water main pipe is connected to a chain and fed through the small tunnel—starting from the roadway and ending at your property.
- At this point, the new copper pipe is hooked up to the city tap connection in the roadway. A new control valve is fitted and connected to the new pipe and the plumbing to your house.
- The final task for installing a water main is returning the property, sidewalk, and roadway back to its original functional state. All holes are refilled, pavement is added, and concrete is poured and leveled.
