Penllyn Water Main Replacement Project

A water main and service replacement project on Gwynedd Avenue, Trewellyn Avenue and Wissahickon Avenue in Lower Gwynedd Township started the week of August 20. The Authority's contractor is currently working on Tewewllyn Avenue. It is anticipated the work will continue on Trewellyn Ave until the week of September 24. Please continue to check back for updates.

It is anticipated that this project will be complete by December, 2018. In 2019, after the water main project is completed, Lower Gwynedd Township plans improvements and paving of the affected streets.

The Authority's contractor for this project is BP Patterson Inc. Work will be done Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. During this time there will be intermittent water service interruptions, limited on-street parking and periodic road closures. We will work with BP Patterson Inc. to keep any inconveniences to a minimum.

Project Background

We are replacing cast iron water main that was originally installed in the early 1960's. The water mains will be upgraded to ductile iron. Service lines will also be replaced from the main up to and including the curb stop. Finally, the existing fire hydrants will be replaced.
