Proactive Plan Protects Critical Pipes & Reaps Big Benefits

The existing 18-inch AC force main dated back to 1967. It was not accessible by maintenance vehicles because of its location along Oyster River, within a marshy tideland area with poor soil conditions and high-water table. Due to the criticality, age, material, and inaccessibility of this force main, it was essential that the Town consider alternatives for a new and redundant force main.
