King Street Water Line Replacement Project June 12, 2019 by SuperUser Account The Shippensburg Borough Authority will soon begin the process of replacing approximately 1.1 miles of aged water main and appurtenances located on King Street ahead of the state’s (PennDOT) resurfacing project that will occur starting in the summer of 2020. The water main replacement project will include the disconnection and reconnection of the existing water service laterals within the project area stretching from North Morris Street to Walnut Bottom Road. The Authority will make the new connection to the new water line and install a new water service lateral to the street side of the property curb, reconnecting at that point to the existing water service lateral. The majority of customers will reconnect in this fashion. In those locations where one water service lateral feeds more than one residential structure, each structure will be required to have its own, dedicated water service lateral and curb stop structure. The Authority will make the necessary tap in from the new water main to the curb and provide individual water service laterals to the street side of the property curb. The property owner will be responsible for completing the installation of the lateral to the property itself. While we do not anticipate the need to enter in to a residence, all Borough staff carry photo identification badges. Should a Borough employee need to enter the inside of a residence they will be carrying proper identification; please check before allowing anyone to enter your home. Funding for some of this work may be available from the Cumberland County Community Block Development Grant program for owner occupied properties wherein the owner meets financial requirements. The Authority will be holding a public meeting on June 12th, 2019 at 6:00 pm at the Vigilant Hose Company 20 Walnut Bottom Road, Shippensburg to provide additional information and discussions with the public.
