Completed Projects — Watermain Replacement

   
 

North College Street Watermain Replacement Project

OWNER:        CITY OF SCHENECTADY
ENGINEER:   JOHN M. McDONALD ENGINEERING P.C.
LOCATION:    NORTH COLLEGE STREET
VALUE:          $125,764.00

SCOPE OF WORK:
  • Project involved the installation of 560ft of 8” ductile iron pipe to replace an existing 4” water main. This created more volume and water pressure to existing residents which they were lacking.
  • The existing 4” water main remained in operation until the completion of the new 8” main.
  • Line stops were installed on each end and new insertion valves were installed on new 8” main. A pressure test and disinfection were performed before new water line was put into operation.
  • 23 new service line taps were installed and connected to existing services at curbs. Existing lead line services when encountered were replaced with copper from new main to building and received new curb stops. All others tied into existing.
  • Upon completion of all services, existing 4” water main was cut and abandoned in place.
  • Trench was then prepared for asphalt installation upon completion.
  • This job was particularly difficult due to an existing concrete chase which was installed to protect fiber optic cable. The new water main was installed next to and under this which slowed progress due to hand digging. Street was narrow and one-way and traffic had to be maintained all day
  • Total length of project took 45 days.
