West Waterloo Water Main Replacement

The Canal Winchester Water Department advertised for bids in January 2017 for the replacement of the water main serving West Waterloo Street from High Street, to Washington Street. The project will involve construction along West Waterloo including the intersections of High Street, Elm Street, and Washington Street. The existing main has been in service since the1930s and has reached the end of its service life.

The city expects to have the project finished by the summer of 2017. There may be some interruption of water service within the limits of this project. There may also be some maintenance of traffic to accompany the construction needs.  more details regarding traffic and water service impacts will be announced as the project progresses. Questions can be addressed to Joe Taylor, Supt. of Water at jtaylor@canalwinchesterohio.gov.
