Water services have been completed! The contractor is currently tying the new water main into the existing water main at each end of the project. Once this is complete, the old water main that runs through the project will no longer be in use. These connections should be completed (weather permitting) on Monday. This work does affect some residents; they are being notified of any shut downs. The new water main (on which all residents are now connected) needs to be turned off during the connection, hence the shut down.

Sanitary repairs have also been completed! The second crew has started on storm sewer repairs and installation. Many of the existing storm structures onsite are being removed and replaced, and then reconnected into the main. Any existing structure that is not being removed and replaced is still being reconnected to the main. Some spots along the main will be repaired, but there aren't many of those. There is also some new storm sewer going in throughout the project, which includes new inlets and catch basins which will be tied into the existing storm sewer. This work should take a couple weeks. Once it is complete, the pavement removal will begin, scheduled for late July/early August.
