While neighbors have been living with dirt and dust for months, the city said that the new way of replacing a water main is actually causing less of a disruption than the old method would have.

“It’s a different style of work than we’ve done before on a water main,” said Department of Public Works Director Bryan Babcock Nov. 3. “We’re pulling a new 8-inch water main through an old water main.
