As of 6/9/22: The Authority is developing a capital improvement program that will span both short-term and long-term projects. The improvements will include the replacement of old cast iron and transite water mains, which are more prone to breakages than mains constructed with modern pipe materials. In addition, the Authority will work to improve the overall water system layout by eliminating dead-end water mains. The water main sizes will be increased on an as-needed basis to improve water pressures and water flow volume capabilities throughout the distribution system. Authority personnel will perform most of this work and plan on at least two water main replacement projects each year.
The capital improvements will also encompass replacement and upgrades to the wastewater collection and conveyance system. Such improvements will include the replacement of older pumping stations as well as repair and/or replacement of elements of the gravity sewer system.
Completed Water Main Replacements:
The Monroe MUA recently replaced 1300’ of water main on Kirk Rd. New 6” C900 PVC pipe replaced the old 6” transite pipe. New 1” copper services were installed from the main to the curb line. New 1” curb stops were installed along with new curb boxes. The MUA installed this main with our new wet tap machine which insured no interruptions throughout the connection for the new main. A new hydrant was also installed on the block and all concrete and asphalt restoration is complete.
