Aging and weakening of the existing cast iron pipes, installed in the 1970’s, have caused numerous main breaks on 22nd Avenue for the past several years.  The expense of repairs, the age of the mains, and unreliability, especially during the winter, triggered the need for replacement.  The project design was completed in April and bids for construction will be accepted in May or June.  New mains will be installed on 22nd Avenue between Highway E and Highway A (Berryville Road).  The project is expected to be completed in October or November, 2016.
