Project Updates

Week of 8/3/2020: This week, the City’s contractor, Mauro Sewer Construction, completed all the water main work on South Street from Meadow Drive to Dove Street. On Plum Grove Drive, the water main installation is complete, and disinfection and sample connection have begun.

Week of 08/10/2020: Next week, Mauro Sewer will begin concrete, asphalt and landscape restoration on South Street and South Court. Installation of water service lines will begin on Plum Grove Drive. Residents will continue to have knocks on their doors, notifying them of a 20-30 minute break in service to connect to the new service. This has been a seamless exercise so far, and will continue to be so, with minimal disturbance.

Traffic Controls will be maintained with new sites of barricades and cones. The public is asked to exercise patience when driving in the area where construction is actively going on. The public should also take note of any “No Parking” signs posted along Plum Grove Drive.
