The company is replacing a 12-inch diameter cast iron water main with 3,000 feet of new 16-inch ductile iron water main to improve water pressure and fire flow in the area. 

“At SUEZ our goal is to provide our customers with the best possible service,” said Lynda DiMenna, manager of SUEZ operations in Westchester. “This $2.7 million infrastructure investment is part of our continuous program to improve water quality, water pressure and service reliability. At a time when much of our nation’s infrastructure is in disrepair, SUEZ is proactively making investments to ensure that our customers have a safe and reliable water supply.” 

The work began Monday on Eastchester Road from Pershing Avenue to North Avenue and will take about 10 weeks to complete. Residents should expect traffic and parking disruptions in the work area. Eastchester Road, eastbound towards North Avenue, will be closed at several locations throughout the project while westbound towards Pelhamdale Avenue it will remain open. 

“We will do our best to minimize any inconvenience,” said DiMenna. ”We ask residents to drive carefully in the work zone for their own safety and for the safety of the construction crew. We would also like to thank our customers for their patience while we make these improvements.”
