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. We plan to begin work in Jones Ferry Road in August 2021.
Traffic, including the bike lane, may be slowed in the area with localized lane closures around the immediate work areas. If the street is too narrow to allow for safe passage of vehicles during construction, then the street will be closed to through traffic, and we will coordinate with individual residents to allow access. A full road closure is not expected at this time.
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 the Summer of 2021.
