New York American Water Replaces Water Main

New York American Water is investing $700,000 to install new water main in Massapequa. The project, scheduled to start Monday, June 22, will replace 3,475 feet of aging water main with new 8-inch ductile iron main. The project will also replace 75 utility-owned service lines and four hydrants, and place three additional hydrants.

"Our Massapequa customers count on us to deliver reliable, quality water service," said New York American Water President Lynda DiMenna. "We achieve this by continuing to reinvest in our infrastructure and this project is an example of that commitment."

This main replacement project will take place along Highwater Ave from South Bay Drive to Fairwater Ave, Greatwater Ave from South Day Drive to Fairwater Ave, and Seagull Place from Fairwater Ave to Highwater Ave. Work is expected to take approximately seven weeks to complete. Final street restoration will be completed as part of a Town of Oyster Bay road and drainage project.
