Temporary pipes

Does anyone know what all the temporary-looking pipes are running along the side of the road in the east Palisades part of CP? It doesn't look like they're going away anytime soon, does it?

Re: Temporary pipes

Have wondered, myself. Consensus is they're water supply.

Re: Temporary pipes

When they install temporary lines like that it usually means United Water is going to clean out the water mains in that area of all the sludge and built up minerals. It could also mean that they have to install a bigger main for that high-rise being built along the cliff. This maintenance happens in all towns every 20 to 25 years.

What most people are unaware of is the same tap water you drink is supplied in the same pipe that supplies the fire hydrants.

Re: Temporary pipes

According to the workmen who installed the hoses in my house about two weeks ago, the work should be done within the next two to three weeks. As it is getting cold, I hope so!

Apparently they are re-lining the pipes with cement after having cleaned them out. Also, it seems that United Water is paying for this project, including the overtime of the police who are directing traffic.
