Project Description:

The Village of Onarga reached out to our team to replace the existing water main line at Jackson Street beneath the existing Canadian National Railroad. The current 4-inch water main along the chosen project limits is broken, and valved off at either end. Because this structure is unusable, the residents and small businesses in the eastern part of town experience suboptimal reliability and access to city water.

To enhance the distribution center, and offer families, businesses and institutions reliable water access, Piggush Engineering has proposed an 8-inch water main construction, located at Jackson Street. The new main will be fed through a steel casing, bored and jacked beneath the Canadian National Railroad. For the most straightforward construction, this new water main will be located along the same route as the existing main that’s to be abandoned.
