2021 Construction

Sanitary Relining Program - June 8

The Sanitary Relining Program starts June 8 with a flushing and video inspection of the sanitary lines in various areas throughout Town. Residents should expect to see heavy equipment on the roadways to complete this work. Residents and businesses will not experience any loss of sanitary services for this preliminary cleaning and preparation work, expected to take 4 to 5 days to complete. Once completed, the final materials will be ordered and the contractor will return in approximately a month to complete the installation. 

Traffic accommodation will be put into place during this work.
