DPU Planned Water work, Cary and Main Streets – downtown



Beginning Saturday, April 18, 2015, the Water Distribution section of the city of Richmond Department of Public Utilities (DPU) will begin an extensive project to replace and upgrade failing water valves at several intersections in downtown Richmond.  Preliminary project work involves digging to uncover the water valves and will begin Sat. April 18, 2015.  The following are the locations and work days and times that work will be performed.  During valve work, intersections may be closed. Water valves allow DPU to control and isolate water flow during emergencies.
