Water Main Rehabilitation

For the 2019 Construction season (Late-March through November), 84,000 linear feet (almost 16 miles) of Providence Water Distribution Mains will be rehabilitated (cleaned and lined) in 3 service areas in our system (Blackstone, Providence; Edgewood, Cranston; and Marieville, North Providence).  Permanent restoration will begin in the College Hill and Mt. Hope sections of Providence; and the Marieville section of North Providence north of Mineral Spring Avenue.

This work may disrupt normal traffic and require temporary by-pass water service connections for customers.  When finished, customers will have improved water quality for years to come.  If you have any questions regarding this project and need to speak to a representative please visit our Contact Us page.
