Water Main Improvement and Design
Since 2009, Tata & Howard has worked with the City of Newton, Massachusetts on water main improvement projects throughout the water system. In total, the designs have included over seven miles of cleaning and lining and over eight miles of new 8-inch and 12-inch diameter water mains. Our services have included design, completion of an Opinion of Probable Cost for construction, construction administration and resident observation. Plans were created using available GIS data from the City and field verification. The majority of the work has been funded through MWRA. A recent design included a new 12-inch diameter water main on Washington Street. Work includes cutting concrete panels, backfilling with Controlled Density Fill, and traffic management.
