In January 2018, Aqua Pennsylvania experienced a large water main break in West Conshohocken Borough that resulted in a substantial service interruption. The impact of the main break was the result of the failure of two large valves, dated 1955, that were needed to isolate the broken pipe from the rest of the system. This Saturday, April 6 beginning at 4 a.m., Aqua will begin removing the old valves and replace them with two brand new 30-inch valves. Having the new valves in place will enable Aqua to isolate areas of the system in the future to minimize the number of customers affected by such breaks should they occur
On April 6, approximately 125 residences/businesses will be impacted in small areas of West Conshohocken Borough and Upper Merion and Lower Merion townships. The affected streets include Tennessee, Kentucky, Hillside and Dehaven avenues; Union Hill, Clipper
