      Project - 48" line, Omnova to Adamsburg

      Install approximately 15,150' 48" CL52 Ductile Iron Pipe for the 48" Omnova to Adamsburg Water Transmission Main,
      Section 1, City of Jeannette and Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County, PA.

      Construction of 48" Transmission Main from Chambers Avenue, Jeannette Omnova Property to connections with Adamsburg Tank.
      Hempfield Township. Project includes relocation of 920' 8" C900 Pipe along Welty Avenue in Jeannette. 

      Proposed Net Expenditure:   $9,868,238.00

      This project will complete the 18.5 mile connection of the two large water storage tanks in Ruffsdale and Adamsburg, and allow water from the Indian Creek Water Treatment Plant and the Sweeney WTP to interchangeably supply each others system.

      Sweeney is located in Bell Township and supplies MAWC service addresses north of Route 30.

      Indian Creek is located in Dunbar Township and supplies MAWC service addresses south of Route 30, along with North Versailles and Forward in Allegheny County. 

      Together, these two plants serve approximately 107,000 of the MAWC's approximate 120,000 drinking water service addresses.

      This 18.5 mile 48" project will allow the two systems' water supply to be used in place of the other in the event of an issue.
