CITY of MANASSAS PUBLIC WORKS to UPGRADE to $20 MILLION WATER TRANSMISSION LINE | Business
As part of the City of Manassas Capital Improvement Program, Manassas’ water transmission main line has been slated for an upgrade, replacing the 24-inch water transmission main line with a 36-inch main line. The current, 45-year old water main line has served the City of Manassas well, but now that the line is approaching its useful life, it is being replaced with a water main line to supply the higher-demand for water, especially in the summer months, as well as improve overall system performance. The City of Manassas is currently working together with Prince William County, Va. along the Rollins Ford/Vint Hill Road/Route 28 road improvement areas, to replace the water transmission line, with project completion planned for 2020 at a total cost of more than $20 million. For details, go to www.manassascity.org or call 703-257-8219.
Manassas’ 24-inch water transmission main line extends approximately seven miles from the Manassas’ Water Treatment Facility in Nokesville, Va. to the City of Manassas. The new, 36-inch water transmission line will not only improve overall water transmission for the City of Manassas, but will increase the reliability, transmission capacity as well as improve water storage tank performance.
“The upgraded water transmission main line will provide water to our citizens and businesses more effectively and efficiently, as well as, keep up with the growing demand for water,” said Mike Moon, City of Manassas director of Public Works and Utilities. “Manassas City completed the first phase of the project in 2014 and now is working on the second and third phases of the project near Route 28 and Vint Hill Road,” said Moon.
