The Southington Water Department's West Main/South Main Street Water Main Replacement Project is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 6, 2019.

In conjunction with the Town and the Plantsville Safety Improvement Project the Southington Water Department will be hiring a contractor to install a new water main on West Main Street and South Main Street with a tentative start date of April 1, 2019. This project is expected to take approximately three months to complete.
The current water mains to be replaced in the center of Plantsville were installed in 1883 and 1912 respectively, with South Main St main installed in 1889. A new 12" water main will be installed through Plantsville Center from the intersection of Summer St/West Main St to the intersection of West Main St / Rt 10 and going south on South Main St for approximately 900 feet.
Part of the project will include replacing the individual water service to each property from main to curb stop at no cost to the customer. As part of our ongoing infrastructure improvements we feel it's more cost effective to install the new water main ahead of the Plantsville Safety Improvements project. This water main project will be solely funded by the Southington Water Department.
