      Project - Hempfield, Peters Road

      Proposed Water Main Extension Peters Road – DCED Grant Program Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County
      MAWC will extend approximately 2,300 feet of water along Peters Road in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County to service 11 existing residential structures. Specifically, the project will entail installation of 2,080 feet of 8-inch C900 CL235 PVC pipe, 180 feet of 8-inch C900 CL305 fusible PVC pipe, 40 feet of 8-inch CL52 ductile iron pipe and four public (4) fire hydrants. The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) awarded MAWC $340,864 grant through its Small Water and Sewer Program to assist with project funding. The total estimated project cost is $411,090. Accordingly, MAWC and Hempfield Township will cost share the $70,226 balance equally. The project will be subject to public bid. MAWC Engineering personnel will be responsible for design, permitting construction inspection and contract management. MAWC Distribution personnel will install system connections and fire hydrants. MAWC Accounting personnel will invoice DCED for payments against the grant on a periodic basis. Figure 2 illustrates the project’s location and extent.
