                                 and Fairchild Ave

Project Budget: To be determined

Project Schedule:

Construction Start Date                To be determined

Project Finish                                 To be determined




The proposed waterline will replace the old 4 and 6-inch pipe along Hudson Road between Fairchild Avenue and Whetstone Drive. The upgrade will improve fire flow that is currently available from the existing undersized line. The new waterline will also be connected at Fairchild Avenue thereby providing an additional connection point and eliminating a dead end on the section south of Cuyahoga Street. Approximately 2,315 feet of water main replacement is proposed.

Sections of the existing waterline range in age from 45 to 87 years old. The City of Kent Service Department has recorded six waterline breaks along the existing Hudson Road water main between Whetstone Drive and Fairchild Avenue during the past several years.
