2019 Baker Hill Water Main Replacement

UPDATED 7/17/19
The water main installation of the project is wrapping up this week. Over the next few weeks we will be working on flushing and testing the newly installed main. Once that is complete, crews will begin the process of switching over individual water services. Customers affected by switch overs will be notified once we start that phase of the project. We sincerely appreciate the community support as we near completion of this water system improvement.

UPDATED 6/24/19
The project is still on schedule to be complete near the end of July. Crews have installed approximately 1,000 feet of the 2,000 feet of water main. Remaining work will include finishing the main installation, installing fire hydrants and the water services served by this water main. We will update the project status again once we are closer to making final connections and switching over individual water services.
Thank you again for the repeated patience during the construction of this project.

Later this month, Kitsap PUD will begin replacing the water main that extends along Baker Hill Road NE, on Bainbridge Island. The new main will provide more resilient utility service and improved fire flow to the community.

We hope to start the project on June 10th, 2019. We anticipate finishing construction sometime in late July. We will be installing approximately 2,000 feet of 8-inch ductile iron water main, valves, and fire hydrants. While construction is underway, water customers will continue to be served from the existing water main. Once the new main is installed, we will switch over individual services. Aside from the short disruptions while we switch services, we do not anticipate any water system outages during this project; however there is always the possibility of breaks during construction. We will address these should they happen. Our plan; however, is to keep the community in water as we construct the new main.
We understand there will be inconvenience to the community during construction. We will do our best to minimize this. We will also keep the community updated as the project progresses. Once construction starts, updates will be posted on our webpage, Facebook page and Twitter feed.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make utility improvements to the area.
