Citywide Service Line Replacement
The Charlottesville Dept. Public Works is replacing service lines and water mains throughout the city. The old zinc coated service lines and mains are deteriorating and are in need of repair. Some service lines are nearing 100 years old. The new service lines are copper, as seen above, and should keep the water flowing for many years to come
