As Soon as Wed., Jan. 11, DC Water to Complete Water-main Connection Overnight


DC Water has informed CSX that it intends to finalize the connection of a new 8-inch water main on 3rd Street S.E. near the intersection with Virginia Avenue during the overnight hours, potentially as soon as Wednesday, January 11. CSX will provide an update when DC Water finalizes the schedule.

The work is not expected to result in any service outages to DC Water customers.

The work may entail saw cutting, equipment noise and lights during the overnight hours. The project team will implement mitigation efforts to minimize the impact of this work, including monitoring noise levels to ensure compliance with DDOT requirements, installing noise barriers to limit sound emanating from the work site and focusing lighting on the work zone.

CSX apologizes for any disturbance this work may cause.
