Water line replacement project moves forward

July 16, 2012

Following a recommendation from the Water, Sewer, Refuse and Streets Committee, the Borough of Ridgway will move forward with a water line replacement project at the Laurel Mill Reservoir.
According to the committee's report, the upgrade will include replacing two 12-inch water mains from the reservoir to the Clarion River.
Environmental Manager Paul McCurdy discussed using one 18-inch line as an alternative to replacing the two lines to save money but said in the event of an emergency, the Borough of Ridgway could wind up without water if something happened to that main line.
