The Connecticut Water Service said it will replace nearly a half-mile of an aging water main in Enfield.

The water company said it will spend almost $500,000 to replace 2,600 feet of a water main that's more than 50 years old.

Work began last week on the south end of Spring Street and water mains on Cross Street and Oak Avenue will also be replaced. Officials said the project is expected to be completed by the end of May.

"This project will improve reliability of water service, enhance water quality and supply more water to hydrants along the road," said Craig J. Patla, the company's vice president.

Patla said the replacement project is being completed through the company's water infrastructure and conservation adjustment (WICA) program.

Connecticut Water has spent nearly $140 million to replace more than 118 miles of water mains under the WICA program since its inception in 2007. The company owns 1,600 miles of water main across Connecticut.

Project updates are available on Connecticut Water's website.
