Virginia American Water Invests $250,000 in Dale City Infrastructure
DALE CITY, V.A. – MAY 11, 2020 – Virginia American Water will replace approximately 640 feet of aging water main in Dale City beginning the week of May 11. The company will upgrade the aging 6-inch water lines with new, 8-inch ductile iron main along Fallbrook Lane from Fairhope Road to Cul-De-Sac.
This $250,000 investment will continue to advance water service reliability and increase water flows for household consumption and fire protection in this community. This improvement is part of Virginia American Water’s multimillion-dollar initiative to accelerate the renewal of water infrastructure that has reached the end of its useful life in our communities across the state.
Virginia American Water’s local, qualified contractor, Prince William Pipeline, will begin work on or about May 11 and expects to finish by the end of July, weather permitting. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work outside of these hours is not expected unless required to maintain project schedule. Final street restorations will be completed in the summer of 2020.
