2017 CIP - Contract A – Project Update 7/25/17

July 25, 2017 

Ardmore

The contractor will continue to install the new fire hydrants. Several of the new fire hydrants will require extensions to raise them to the proper elevation. This is due to the need to lower the new water main to avoid conflicts with sanitary services. All new fire hydrants should be installed by Tuesday, July 25. At that time, the contractor will flush and fill the new water main, then conduct a pressure test. Once that test is successfully completed, the water main will be chlorinated and tested for safe drinking. Upon approval, work to connect individual services to residences will begin.

Drake

On Wednesday, July 26, the contractor will begin work on the new 8" water main on Drake at the intersection of Cambridge, heading west. Please see the attached resident notice for more information.
