Public Notice


3rd Street NE Water Main Replacement Project


On February 23rd you will notice an increase in construction activity on 3rd Street NE and 5th Avenue NE. As most of you know, we recently experienced a number of water main breaks in your neighborhood. While repairing the water main, we discovered that the 80 year old cast iron pipe is in very poor condition and warrants immediate replacement.  The City of Puyallup Water Division will be replacing the old 6 inch water main with new 8 inch ductile iron pipe. Ductile iron pipe has a life expectancy of 100 years. This project will start on the north side of 5th Avenue NE and continue north to 608 3rd Street NE. At the end of the project, we will abandon the existing water main that has reached the end of its useful service life and has become unreliable.


The City understands that construction is difficult for the people that have to live through it, so we will try to keep the inconvenience to a minimum. You will be notified 24 hours in advance of any necessary water shut downs, except for emergencies. The City will try to maintain access to your driveways, and will give you warning when access must be blocked.


It is the Citys goal to complete the water main replacement portion of the project by March 13th. Paving will be scheduled shortly after that, weather permitting. Traffic will be restricted to local and emergency traffic only for the duration of the project.
