The crew installed 138LF of sewer main and 140LF of force main as well as MH#40 on Westaway. Due to continued emergency sewer main repairs down county no other work was performed this week. Drilling on Old New Road will continue. Erosion and Sedimentation controls were checked to protect the creek from runoff and inlet covers were checked. Meetings with residents in the construction area for lateral location stakes is continuing. The project is currently on budget but behind schedule about 9 weeks.
A special note for the residents of Westaway
We realize you have endured, and continue to endure the conditions during the drilling and the aftermath. We appreciate your continued patience. The crews will be sweeping every Friday, and will do all they can to reduce the dust and stones. Unfortunately we can’t eliminate it completely but we will do our best. We expect to be installing sewer and force main on Westaway at Old New Road in 3 – 4 weeks. We expect to complete the sewer main and force main installation on Westaway 4-5 weeks after we start. Rock encountered and weather will affect the schedule.
In the next week weather and conditions permitting we will expect to install:
- A portion of Old New Road between Bristol and Westaway will be down to one lane at 8:00 am until 4:00pm Monday thru Friday until the drilling is completed
- Continue working up Westaway installing sewer and force main from MH#40 towards MH#41
- 150 LF of sewer main towards MH#80 on Willow Lane (if we complete the down county work before the end of this week)
- Continue meeting with residents (applying social distancing) to identify lateral location and depth
- Drilling on Old New Road
BCWSA Employees will be putting safety protocols for the Corona virus in place on the job site. They will be wearing gloves, keeping distance between each other when possible & as appropriate, wiping down equipment & vehicles while in use. Interaction with residents is to be postponed. If a lateral location needs to be adjusted any interaction between residents and BCWSA personnel will be done with the appropriate social distancing & protection needed for safety.
