Pennsylvania American Water announced the start of construction to replace two sections of sewer main in Coatesville. The company will install more than 900 feet of new 8-inch pipe at a cost of approximately $375,000.
Starting October 8, Pennsylvania American Water crews will be installing new pipe on Harlan Drive (from Dulles Drive to Adams Drive) and Adams Drive (from Harlan Drive to Coates Street). Crews will work weekdays from 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. The company expects to complete the project by the end of November, with final restoration and paving scheduled for spring 2022.
Wastewater service to the area will be maintained during construction with little interruption. Once the new sewer main is installed, customer-owned service laterals will need to be connected to the new main. When this work occurs, there might be a short interruption of service. Residents will be notified in advance.
