Pebble Ridge Sewer Project Update – June 19, 2020

The crew installed 102LF of sewer main, 102LF of force main and MH#23 on Old New Road. The second crew installed 137LF of sewer main and MH#75 on Willow Lane. Rock in Willow Lane and in Old New Road is slowing production but we are making better progress than last week. Restoration of the 1st leg of the easement area was completed from Lower State Road to the upper section of Old New Road. 2nd leg still to be completed. Drilling on Willow Lane is continuing on Old New Road. 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. Westaway was swept on Thursday this week due to weather. The project is currently on budget but behind schedule about 8 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:

  • Old New Road will be closed starting on 5-26-20 at 8:00 am until 4:00pm Monday thru Friday until the main is installed
  • MH PS-24 and 100 LF of sewer and force main towards MH#25 on Old New Road
  • MH76 and 200 LF of sewer main towards MH#77 on Willow Lane
  • 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.
