South Side Water Main Project Begins Next Week
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - Paducah Water is preparing to invest an additional $1.2 million into Paducah’s south side for a water main replacement in the area of Bridge Street. 

Paducah Public Information Officer Pam Spencer says Murtco, a contractor for the utility, will begin work on the project next week. This project includes replacing approximately 9,000 feet of water main, meters, service lines and fire hydrants.

Spencer says the purpose of the work is to enhance reliability and water service in the area by replacing water mains that are more than 110 years old and have a history of main breaks. Work is expected to continue in this area through Spring 2021.
Customers may experience temporary disturbance to yards and disruption of water service. Drivers may experience temporary road closures, congested work zones and delays. Spencer says Paducah Water will attempt to minimize these disruptions and restore all disturbed areas to original or better condition. 
This work is part of Paducah Water's Capital Improvement Program that replaces aging infrastructure. The utility has invested more than $29.4 million into its system and installed more than 230,000 linear feet of new water main over the past 10 years.
