Work hours: 7:00am - 7:00pm Expected completion date: Dec. 15th, 2013
The Contractor has successfully completed leak testing the pipeline with the new 48” slipline. The grouting between the new liner and the existing pipe was completed the week of Thanksgiving.
Neighbors may notice the discharge of large volumes of water down storm drains on Helen Drive. Unfortunately the water can’t be delivered to the public nor reused for other testing after it leaves the pipe, due to water quality regulations. This “dewatering” will be monitored so flooding will not occur. In addition, construction traffic will continue on Helen Dr. Pilot cars will escort trucks for safety and flaggers will be stationed on Helen Dr. as needed.
