Keedysville water infrastructure upgrades mostly complete

January 05, 2012

The water infrastructure upgrades in Keedysville are mostly complete, according to the town of Keedysville's website, www.keedysvillemd.com.

Included in the upgrades are a new 300,000 gallon water storage tower, a new booster pump station that is pumping water to the reservoir in Boonsboro, and approximately 6,000 feet of new water line on Main Street, according to the website.

According to a published report in September, work crews from C. William Hetzer Inc. had been working to replace a water main on Main Street (Md. 845) in Keedysville since early April. Temporary above ground water lines were placed in the areas where the work was being performed.

Chicago Bridge and Iron was contracted to work on the water tower, and Ferri Contracting was contracted to work on the booster pump station, according to the website.

The work also required lane closures on Main Street periodically and even a water shutdown throughout the whole town one day in late September.

Minor work still needs to be done to the system, according to the website, but for the most part it is complete.
