Tennessee American Water Begins Dodds Avenue Main Replacement

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Tennessee American Water has begun work this week to replace a main on Dodds Avenue, between East 37th Street and Rossville Boulevard.  The project involves installing 4,500 feet of six-inch diameter pipe. The $1.3 million project will improve water service reliability and increase water flows for household use and firefighting.

“Tennessee American Water is committed to upgrading the drinking water infrastructure and replacing aging water main is an important part of that commitment,” said Tennessee American Water Engineering Manager Grady Stout.  “Replacement of water mains improves the delivery of water service to our customers and strengthens our system for the future.”

The project is expected to continue through the end of the year, depending on weather and other construction factors that could affect the schedule.  For the safety of work crews, motorists and pedestrians in the area, Tennessee American Water encourages drivers and pedestrians to be extra cautious in the vicinity of work zones.  The project will be completed by Tennessee American Water’s qualified pipe contractor, Mayse Construction Company.

Tennessee American Water invests approximately $25 million annually in capital improvement projects to maintain quality, reliable water service for customers, officials said..
