Why now?

Parts of our Metzger service area are experiencing an increase in development. To better serve this area, and plan for future development, a new water transmission line is necessary.

How does this affect me?

Depending on your property type and use, this project will affect you in different ways and times:

Working Times

Work will occur between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Work may periodically occur outside of these times if approved by Washington County.

Traffic Disruptions

Vehicular and pedestrian access within the project area will be limited during construction. Roads within the project area will be reduced to one lane and controlled by flagging within the sections that are being actively installed. The location of the lane reduction will move as construction progresses.

TVWD will work to maintain access to neighborhoods and driveways throughout the project. Temporary access may be provided by placing steel plates over exposed work areas while that section is being installed and/or connected.

General Construction Disruptions

During construction, heavy equipment and materials will be located in the work area. These areas will be clearly marked with cones and/or caution tape. When construction is occurring noise and dust may be present.

Water Service Disruptions

If needed, water service disruptions will be scheduled in the middle of the day when most residents are away from home. It is TVWD's goal to minimize the water service disruption time for all customers. You will be notified at least 48 hours in advance of when service disruptions are planned.
