GENESEO – The water main restoration project took its first bite of Main Street asphalt on Tuesday, and two long, narrow trenches could be seen extending from the bear fountain at Center Street to the Big Tree Inn at 46 Main Street Tuesday evening.
Contractors with Nardozzi paving say that the project will dig a 4-foot wide trench from the fountain to North Street, and water main underneath the road will be replaced.
Sections of pipe are currently waiting at the ready in the small parking lot behind the Nature Conservancy building at 1 Main.
According to Nardozzi’s project schedule, the work is currently in the first days of the water main installation phase, which will run until July 22.
A manhole was installed over the sewer line between 8 and 4 Main last week.
