Jones Ferry Road Water Treatment Plant Improvements

OWASA is continuing construction of our Jones Ferry Road Water Line Resiliency Improvements Project. Work is currently occurring only on the OWASA campus at the Water Treatment Plant on Jones Ferry Road.

Periodic lane closures of Jones Ferry Road will be required in front of the Water Treatment Plant to carry out the work safely. Work in the roadway will generally occur between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The projects total a roughly $6 million investment to improve drinking water distribution and treatment facilities at the WTP. Water line improvements directly in front of the WTP will build in additional redundancy and resiliency to support the community’s water infrastructure and maintain a high level of service for customers.

As part of the WTP improvement work, contractors will be making improvements to the WTP finished water pump system. Contractors will also be installing a new bulk chemical storage containment area, as well as making improvements to the existing bulk storage area.

This page will be updated as the impact from the projects has a greater affect on the area immediately surrounding the WTP, including any traffic impacts on Jones Ferry Road.

Work is expected to last into early 2022.
