Water Main Rehabilitation

For the 2016 Construction season (April through November), 56,000 linear feet (over 10 miles) of Providence Water Distribution Mains will be replaced or rehabilitated (cleaned and lined) in 2 service areas in our system. Replacement and rehabilitation work will resume in the Blackstone section of Providence and the Edgewood section of Cranston. Permanent restoration will resume in the Auburn section of Cranston and the Blackstone section of Providence.
 
This work may disrupt normal traffic and require temporary by-pass water service connections for customers.  When finished, customers will have improved water quality for years to come.  If you have any questions regarding this project and need to speak to a representative please visit our Contact Us page.
