BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Cutting and capping the old water-line valves is scheduled to begin today as the Town of Bath water replacement project nears completion.
A final work order was approved Wednesday by the Bath Town Council.
David Diehl, who is supervising the project for Cowgirl Up, the contractor that replaced the water lines, said site preparations were to begin immediately, and the first valve to be cut and capped is on the northwest corner of U.S. 522 and Fairfax Street.
Diehl said no traffic will be affected at the site.
Councilman David Crosby, who chairs the finance committee, said Hydra Stop Inc. will cut and cap 15 water-line valves at a cost of $121,399.
Wesley Burns of Hydra Stop Inc. has been subcontracted by Cowgirl Up, said Terry Largent, chief water operator for Berkeley Springs Water Works, the town-owned water company.
