Trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethylene (PCE) were found in drinking water at properties on Welty Road in 2007.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection agreed to grant up to $500,000 to extend public-water service to the properties.
Washington Township is facilitating the project in cooperation with the Waynesboro Borough Authority, which will own the waterline on the section of road between the stone bridge and sharp curve.
Borough and township crews will work on and around East Ninth Street, State Hill Road and Welty Road.
"It’s expected to be completed this construction season," Washington Township Manager Mike Christopher said last week.
The source of the contamination was not pinpointed, but some of the highest lab results were linked to a nearby spring.
