UPDATE ON SEWER CONSTRUCTION
The contractor for the Historic Rogers Road Area sewer installation began work in late September. We estimate that the work will be complete later this year, but weather and other conditions may affect the contractor’s progress. The sewer that has been installed, to date, is shown in red on the map on the back. Please note the impact of unexpected construction delays and weather on expected sewer installation dates.
Order of work: Please see the map on the back. Over the next month, the contractor will continue to install pipe in the areas (shown in blue) south of Tallyho Trail. The map lists the expected dates of the future phases of work, and these dates will be updated as work progresses. Please be aware that our estimates of when the contractor will work in a given area are subject to change due to weather, etc.
The majority of tree clearing will be complete by the end of this month. The rock blasting permit has not yet been issued. Rock removal via rock grinding will continue throughout the upcoming month with the option of blasting (pending final permit approval) later on in the construction schedule. Also, please note the summary from the April 5th public meeting on blasting is attached to this monthly notice.
How the work may affect you:
• In some locations, the contractor will work in “easements” in off-street areas where OWASA has the right to make improvements; do repairs, maintenance and inspections; and maintain clear access. When the contractor works in the street right-of-way, traffic may be limited to one lane near the work area or closed with a detour. We will maintain access for emergency and service vehicles at all times.
• If the contractor must block access to your driveway to install a sewer, the contractor will notify you in advance.
• There will be noise, dust and mud. The contractor’s normal work hours will be 7 AM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday.
• If it is necessary to interrupt any utility services, we will notify you in advance if the interruption is planned. If the interruption is not planned, we will work with the utilities involved to restore service as soon as possible.
We know this sewer project has been a long time coming, and we look forward to its completion. If you have questions, comments, or concerns about this sewer project, please contact me at the number or email below.
