Maribel Avenue Water Pipe Replacement Project


Project phase


 Project updates

Charlotte Water (CLTWater) is starting construction to replace existing 2-inch galvanized steel pipe (GSP) water main with a new 2 water main within the area listed below:

  1. Maribel Avenue between Hildebrand Street to the dead-end

Construction may start around September 17th or later and last one month.

During Construction

Construction can be loud, dirty and inconvenient. Crews will be using heavy equipment and storing materials on-site. Construction will take place along the road right-of-way. Any damages due to construction will be restored. Please be aware of your surroundings near the construction site and report any safety concerns to the project inspector as soon as possible.

Property Access (Driveway)

Construction activities will take place within the street right-of-way. However, driveway and sidewalk access may be limited at times. If you need assistance, please talk to the contractor or call project inspector.

Please alert us to any invisible fencing, irrigation systems, and other underground improvements to your home near the street.

Lane Closures and Street Parking

Street Parking may be restricted when construction is in the immediate area. Flaggers will help drivers navigate around any lane closures.

Planned Water Outages

Staff will notify affected customers of planned water outages 72-hours in advance. Any unplanned water outages are considered emergencies and will be repaired as soon as possible.

Discolored Water is Possible

Construction may cause temporary cloudy, discolored water or lower than usual pressure. If you experience some discoloration in your water:

  1. Run the cold water from your outside spigot or tub for 15 minutes.
  2. When the water runs clear, run cold water through any taps where discolored water is present.
  3. If not clear, call 311 to report issues.

Flowing Hydrants

Residents may see water flowing from hydrants as part of construction activities.


Crews will complete a temporary restoration of anything disturbed by construction. Final restoration may occur after completing a phase or the entire project. Our project inspector can assist with restoration questions. Properties that lose grass during construction will be reseeded and covered with straw.


  • Crews will replace old pipe to reduce potential leaks.​

​Areas near construction were notified before construction. There will be planned water outages to move customer’s services to new pipes. Property owners will be notified in advance. If there are unplanned water outage, crews will work to fix it immediately.​​​​

​To be​ determined.
