About this Project:
The Northern Intermediate High Section 110 Project will provide water system redundancy to MWRA's Northern Immediate High service area, which serves the fully-supplied communities of Reading and Stoneham and to the partially-supplied communities of Wakefield, Wilmington, Winchester, and Woburn.
MWRA supplies water to the Northern Intermediate High service communities through a single transmission main: Section 89. Because there is currently no fully-redundant pipeline for Section 89, it can not be taken out of service for inspection and repairs. The potential loss of Section 89 would result in a rapid loss of service in Reading, Stoneham and Woburn, and possible water restrictions in Wakefield, Wilmington and Winchester.
Work in Reading:
MWRA is constructing a new, 8,800 foot, 36-inch diamater water transmission main (Section 110) that will provide water system redundancy and allow MWRA to take Section 89 out of service for inspection and rehabilitation.
Work will be performed by MWRA contractor Albanese D&S, Inc. and will take place in Reading and Woburn. This work is expected to be complete in December, 2017.
For more information, please contact Jeff McLaughlin at (617) 305-5762.
Work to begin March 28, 2016: Please be advised the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority along with our contractor Albanese D & S Construction will begin the installation of the new 36 inch water pipe on Monday March 28, 2016.
The construction activity will begin on Hopkins Street in the area of Hopkins and Main Street (Rt. 28), Reading, MA. The contractor anticipates installing approximately 20-30 feet per day. At the end of each week the excavated trench area will be temporarily paved. Residents will be updated periodically as the construction progresses. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause residents.
