This weekend the de-watering system installed last Friday made good headway on the ground water levels ranging from a full 6” discharge pipe on last Friday to about a ¼ of the 6” discharge pipe this morning. The weather last night and this morning has increased the flows as well as hindered our ability to have dry backfill materials. After speaking with the contractor we believe the best plan is to allow the pump to run today and tomorrow and begin the excavation Wednesday (11/07/2018) morning at first light. We should be able to acquire reasonable backfill as well as line up asphalt to complete this repair. We want all of our businesses as well as citizens to know that they are doing everything possible to expedite this situation. We understand that this has caused much inconvenience and for that we are very sorry. We appreciate the patience of our businesses and citizens.
