Work commenced again this week after the contractor took a couple month break due to the winter weather conditions. This week the contractor excavated for the new pre-cast concrete wet well at the southeast corner of the basin of Euclid Avenue.  The contractor excavated the ground and installed a 37 ft. deep steel shoring system for safe excavation.  On Friday the contractor used a large crane to lift and place pieces of the pre-cast concrete wet well structure inside the shoring; thereby completing the installation of the structure.

With all sewer work north of Harrison complete, the contractor completed paving the roadway and associated restoration along Bryan, Jackson, Prospect, and Parkside. At the basin site, the contractor has been excavating for two weeks and will continue at least through the end of November. The next few weeks will also include the delivery and installation of the block retaining walls that will be placed within the basin. In December, once the basin is nearing completion, the contractor will begin connecting the newly installed storm sewer pipes along Bryan Street to the basin in order to make the basin functional.
