Water Board Update: 2-14-2019


Existing Basins Demolition – What’s That Noise?

The demolition of the existing basins officially began earlier this week. The additional noise you are hearing is the large equipment breaking apart the old structure. We anticipate the demolition activity to take approximately 8 weeks. As a reminder, there will be a strict dust mitigation plan in place and we will be monitoring both noise and vibration levels more closely to minimize as much disruption aspossible. There will be no demolition work outside of normal hours (Monday – Friday from 7:30am to 4:30pm).

Stockpile – When Are the Large Piles of Dirt Going Away?

Backfilling around the new reservoirs has begun. Good news! That means the stockpiles of dirt around the site will slowly be going away.  Please note that this is a slow process and is also weather dependent. Like other construction activities onsite, dust and noise are being monitored and dust mitigation is being used. We continue to appreciate your patience with these activities.

General Construction Hours

General work hours are 7:00 am – 6:00 pm, Monday – Friday.

Saturday work will continue to be an option the subcontractor and MWHC will retain and use when necessary to keep the project on schedule or at times when the additional work could result in condensing the overall construction timeline. Saturday work hours will be consistent with weekday hours 7:00 am – 6:00 pm.
