The East Wenatchee Water District (District) has embarked on a long-term program to replace aging and undersized steel water mains. The existing steel mains identified in this program have a history of frequent leaks. The District has been working with the City of East Wenatchee (City) and Douglas County (County) to reduce the pavement restoration costs for some of these projects. The goal is to construct the projects in 2020 with enough time remaining for the City to perform full-width street overlays. In the roads the City plans to overlay, the District would provide a standard trench patch.
1. Clements Circle from 13th Street NE
Replace approximately 1,300lf of 4-inch steel main with 8-inch ductile iron pipe.
2. 4th Street NE from North Colorado Avenue to 359 4th Street NE
Replace approximately 550lf of 4-inch steel main with 8-inch ductile iron pipe.
In the roads the City will not overlay, RH2 Engineering, Inc., (RH2) assumes the District will need to do both a trench patch and a half-street overlay.The District’s crew will begin replacing customer water service lines and meter vaults in 2019, with the goal to complete individual streets before the contractor arrives. The contractor will construct all other work and reconnect the new customer services to the new main.
Douglas County Transportation and Land Services (County) is planning to rebuild and extend NW Empire Avenue from 34th Street NW to the newly constructed 35th Street NW in 2020. In 2019, a 12-inch water main was installed within 35th Street NW from NW Cascade Avenue to approximately 100 feet short of Empire Avenue. East Wenatchee Water District (District) plans to install a new water main with the Empire Avenue road extension. There is 260 feet of a 47-year-old, 4-inch steel water main between 34th Street NW and Goldcrest Street NW that will be replaced. The total project length is approximately 1,600 feet.
