Plans to Replace Water Line on Kensington Dr.

OWASA recently awarded a construction contract for the water line replacement along Kensington Drive and the associated cul-de-sacs. This construction contract also includes the replacement of the Barclay Road water line near Estes Drive and Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard. The Barclay Road site was added to this contract due to an unusually high number of water main breaks that occurred this past Spring.

While both areas are a high priority for replacement, the contractor must complete the water main replacement in Barclay Road first because it is at considerably higher risk for near term breaks. As such, we anticipate work on Kensington will start in 2020. As we get closer to the start of work in your neighborhood, we will provide additional notices with more details.
