EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) will be hosting an Open House on the First Avenue Water Main Replacement project later this week.

It will be held at Ivy Tech from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14th.

The open house is designed to explain the project’s scope and answer any questions from the community.

Officials from EWSU will give an overview of the project and provide general customer information.

There will also be time for one-on-one discussions to talk about individual property questions.

The First Avenue Water Main Replacement project will include 7,900 feet of new four-inch to 36-inch water main pipe and related improvements from Eichel Avenue to Colonial Avenue.

The goal is to increase water supply to northern areas of the EWSU distribution system and improve water distribution.

Bids are scheduled for later this year, with construction anticipated to begin in early 2020.

More information about other ongoing and upcoming projects can be found at the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility’s website.
