On June 20th you will notice an increase in construction activity on 14th Street Place NW. The water main on this street is 54 years old, is past the end of its useful service life, and has become unreliable. The City of Puyallup Water Division, as part of its preventivemaintenance program, will be replacing the existing 2 inch galvanized iron pipe with a new 4 inch ductile iron pipe. Ductile iron pipe has a life expectancy of 100 years.
This project will start on 4th Ave NW and continue south on 14th Street Place to the end of the cul-de-sac. At the end of the project, we will abandon the existing water main.
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.
This cul-de-sac is scheduled for water main replacement, storm water improvements, and new pervious asphalt paving. It is the City’s goal to complete the water main replacement portion of the project by July 22nd. Storm water improvements and paving will be scheduled later this summer. Traffic and parking will be restricted for the duration of the project.
