Clarification on Upcoming Boot Road Restrictions

Clarification on Upcoming Boot Road Restrictions

This is in response to concern about the impending travel restrictions on Boot Road in East Goshen Township. As we communicated yesterday, Aqua Pennsylvania is planning a weekday lane closure on Boot Road between Wilson Drive and Jaclyn Drive from Thursday, June 13, through Friday, July 12, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, for water main installation work.

Since that message was sent out, concern has been raised that Aqua’s work may be related to the recent inadvertent returns (mud spills) in this area from the Mariner East pipeline installation. However, after conferring with Aqua, it is the Township’s understanding that this project is completely unrelated to the pipeline installation or the recent inadvertent returns. Aqua’s work, which will include adding a valve pit and regulating equipment to its water distribution infrastructure, is part of its planned 2019 capital improvement program.

Thank you for your continued patience along the Boot Road corridor.
