Fairfax Water will replace an aged cast iron water main that runs the length of S. West Street in Falls Church this spring, according to F.C. City Manager Wyatt Shields, who said F.C. officials requested the upgrade. The work will involve digging up the street between W. Broad and Abbott Streets and the replacement of cast iron pipe with new ductile iron pipes.
Once the job is done, the City will commence to replace the roadbed on the street over the summer. Fairfax Water handled the water main break on E. Broad last week, with the City assisting with traffic control and communications. “It was done with a minimum of disruptions,” Shields said.
