Grandview Avenue Valve Replacements

The 1920s lines and valves were replaced in three phases, completing a project that was ongoing since 2008.

Finishing this project enhanced water service reliability and safety in the area and coincided with Laporte Avenue repaving that was completed later in the summer.

  • These custom-built water valves from the 1920s were removed and new valves were installed during this project.
