Utility work will continue around Northside and the Blacksburg Estates entrance.
“A force main is a pressurized main pipe that can carry water, sewage, and other materials. Forced mains, as they are also known, are used in a variety of setting. Some systems combine this pipe with other types of mains, as terrain and circumstances change, to make sure that the needs of the system will be met. Such piping is typically installed by sanitation workers, who are also responsible for maintaining it in a fit condition so that public health risks are not created.”
