Water Main Replacements

Lincoln Water System develops a list of planned pipeline replacements annually using the following general considerations:

  • Locations with a high frequency of breaks
  • Opportunity projects resulting from coordination with street repaving and construction projects, and coordination with sanitary sewer construction projects
  • Locations with users whose public or commercial impact would be severely affected by loss of water (schools, hospitals, restaurants, hair salons, etc.)
  • Potential problem areas located within the right-of-way of public roads
  • Areas with known highly corrosive soils
