CITY of MANASSAS PUBLIC WORKS to UPGRADE to $20 MILLION WATER TRANSMISSION LINE

CITY of MANASSAS PUBLIC WORKS to UPGRADE to $20 MILLION WATER TRANSMISSION LINE

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.
