Map MWRA Pipeline Projects in Arlington

On Thursday, February 21st, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be holding a public meeting in Arlington to discuss plans for a pipeline in Arlington.

The meeting will be at Town Hall at 7:00 p.m.

The proposed work will include two pipelines. The first is to replace a 100-year-old, 16-inch line with a new 24-inch line that runs from MWRA’s Brattle Street Pump Station onto Massachusetts Avenue, Robbins Road and Hawthorne Road, then to MWRA water tank at Park Circle. This new 4,500 foot line will provide increased capacity and better water service.

The second is a new 36-inch pipeline that will start on Pleasant Street, travel up Brunswick Road onto Hillsdale and connect to MWRA’s Spring Street Pump Station. This new 1,200 foot line will provide redundancy for this service area.

The project is currently in the design phase and construction is not expected to begin until Winter 2013/2014. Subsequent public meetings will be held as project planning progresses. For more information, please call Jeff McLaughlin at MWRA at 617-660-7976.
