Cary is currently under a Stay-at-Home order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Most public-facing and staffed facilities are closed to the public, including Town Hall. All playgrounds are closed but greenways, parks, and park restrooms remain open at this time. Some services have been canceled or are limited. Learn more.

The Town annually and proactively replaces water mains whose age and condition make them vulnerable to unexpected service interruptions and costly repairs. The 2020 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.

This project involves replacing the water main along a portion of Academy Street (Ambassador Loop to Chapel Hill Road), a portion of Griffis Street (Dorothy Drive to W Cornwall Road), a portion of Pond Street (W Cornwall Road to Maynard Road), Rose Street, Gordon Street, Washington Street (E Cornwall Road to Briarcliff Street), and the second phase of the Walnut Hills subdivision which includes Sturdivant Drive (Walnut Street to Scott Place), Manchester Drive (Sturdivant Drive to Wickham Hills Place), Kimbolton Drive (Manchester Drive to Shincliffe Court), Ivy Lane (Walnut Street to end), Lyerly Lane, Champion Drive, Lane Drive (Ivy Lane to Sturdivant Drive) and Askham Drive. 

Project Award: The project has been awarded to Moffat Pipe, Inc.
