As this project progresses, residents may experience periodic:

During this period, the contractor will cooperate with the residents to provide temporary access to existing driveways.

Sidewalks, streets, yards, etc., will be restored after completion of the work.

If you have any questions, please contact the Utility Office at 740-695-1410.

Thank you.

Additional boring, water line installation, and tap replacement work will occur at a later date.

The City Council voted to award this contract to The James White Construction Company of Weirton, WV, a firm with experience in this type of work and which presented the lowest and best bid.  The subcontractor retained to perform the boring work is D&D Underground, which trucks may or may not contain company information.

As this project progresses, residents may experience periodic:

  • traffic in neighborhood where construction/boring work is ongoing; and
  • no “on street” parking to allow the contractor to perform the needed work.

The contractor will cooperate with residents to provide temporary access to existing driveways during this period.  Sidewalks, streets, yards, etc. will be restored after completion of the work.

If you have not already done so, please sign up for the Belmont County CodeRED emergency notification system.  The City’s Utility Office places calls to City residents using CodeRED to alert them of time-sensitive or emergency issues around the City.  To the greatest extent possible, the Utility Office narrows the scope of the notifications so that only the residents who need the information are contacted.  The CodeRED system is the most efficient and timely way to communicate information to residents impacted by the construction / installation of new water lines.  Staff in the Utility Office can quickly set up in CodeRED a resident’s desired method of contact.  The City administration urges all residents to take advantage of this convenient, free service.

The City appreciates residents’ cooperation as this important project moves forward.  The inconvenience which residents face will be temporary but necessary.  The City estimates that over the last ten years, it has spent roughly $2 million dollars to fix water line breaks in nearly 100-year-old pipe under the City.  This project is the first step in eliminating this wasteful spending and improving the quality of the City’s water and water delivery network.

Additional work and notifications will follow later.  If questions, please call the City’s Utility Office (740-695-1410) between 8:30 A. M. and 4:30 P. M.; after normal business hours, please leave a message with the answering service.  Thank you.
