People at some Endicott homes and businesses have been asked to limit their water use in recent weeks while a rehabilitation project is underway.

Crews from National Water Main Cleaning Company have been working on water lines in the village.

Several workers were busy on Monday using underground cameras and robotic equipment in water lines on Endicott's North Side.

Braydon Hudson, a closed-circuit TV operator, was working in a truck stationed at North McKinley Avenue and Witherill Street.

Hudson said the main line rehab process essentially was "making an old pipe into a new pipe" without the need to dig up the existing line.

Sitting in front of a couple of video monitors, Hudson used computer controls to guide equipment to reinstate laterals to individual homes along McKinley Avenue. The work was being done in a water line about ten feet below the street.

Other teams were doing similar work on other North Side streets on Monday.

One lane of the heavily-used section of McKinley Avenue remained open while the rehab project was underway with flaggers controlling traffic in alternating directions.
