Water Treatment Plant Construction Update

A large excavator arrived on site this week, and will be clearing the temporary staging area for jobsite offices and temporary roads over the next week. Soil, brush, stumps and rock will be removed from the site using dump trucks. Other equipment and supplies including a forklift, track hoes and work trailers will continue to arrive on site.

From next week, excavation will begin on the underground water reservoir (clearwell) south of the lagoons and will continue through October.

During the next three weeks, work hours will be 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Neighbors can expect some noise and an increase in truck traffic as equipment arrives and soil is removed from the site. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
