Pennsylvania American Water Completes $650,000 System Upgrade

Aug. 10, 2011
More than 3,500 ft of aging water main replaced in Dunmore Borough

Pennsylvania American Water recently completed upgrades to more than 3,500 ft of water main in Dunmore Borough, Pa., to improve reliability for customers, reduce service disruptions and increase water flows for firefighting. The cost of the system improvements, which replaced pipe dating back to the early 1900s, is approximately $650,000.

"To ensure that we continue to provide reliable water service to our customers, we need to reinvest in the local water infrastructure, particularly the areas where 100-year old pipeline needs to be replaced," said Anthony Gangemi, superintendent of field services, Pennsylvania American Water.

The company replaced existing 2- and 4-in. water main with new 8-in. pipe along four streets.

With the new water main installed, the company expects to complete final paving restoration in the project areas by late August.
