The Town annually and proactively replaces water mains whose age and condition make them vulnerable to unexpected service interruptions and costly repairs. The 2019 water main replacement project locations are shown in the map below and listed beneath. The water mains on these streets will be upgraded to ductile iron pipe designed to the current Town of Cary standards in order to continue providing high-quality water service to these areas.
