Cress Creek Water Main Replacement

The City's Water/Wastewater Utility will be replacing approximately 900 feet of water main in the southern part of the Cress Creek neighborhood this fall. The work will take place on the north side of Royal St. George, from Cress Creek Park to Flossmoor Court.

Project Timeline

The water main replacement began in October and is expected to conclude in mid-November, pending weather and unforeseen circumstances.

Project Benefits

This project is expected to reduce the number of water main breaks in this location, improving the quality of service and minimizing future disruption.

Impacts to the Public

All work will take place on the parkway and sidewalk areas. Access to driveways will be maintained with temporary stone ramps. Service disruptions are not anticipated, apart from a brief, 20-minute period when existing water services are transferred to the new main.

Impacted driveway aprons will be replaced after the project is complete with the original material used (concrete, brick, blacktop). Sidewalks will be replaced, the parkway resodded and any affected landscaping replanted. This area is home to several large, mature trees. Every effort will be made not to disrupt these trees by boring the new pipes underneath them.
