The existing water main that entered through an old brick wall in the 1941 basement will be replaced as part of the project. The new system will supply our water needs and fire suppression system through a single inlet in the lower level. Doing this work now will allow water and fire suppression to continue uninterrupted while we rebuild the sanctuary. The new line passes between the prayer garden and the new columbarium before angling towards a section of our water main that was replaced in Sacred Space Phase I (2010).
The new line will be pressured tested, flushed with chlorine, bacteria tested and okayed by the city before it is connected to the Redeemer water system the week of March 15, 2021.
