County Road F Watermain Replacement

Overview

The watermain on County Road F from Bellaire Avenue to East County Line Road has failed 14 times within the last 40 years. This project will replace that watermain with new Ductile Iron Pipe, as well as reconnecting new services from the new watermain. The watermain replacement is to be completed prior to Ramsey County's road improvement project.
