Storm and Sanitary Installation On-Going on Henley Street. Water Main Started

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street between Washington Street and Lincoln Street. The contractor has crossed through the intersection of Lincoln Street and Henley Street. We appreciate your cooperation while this intersection was closed to facilitate construction in the area.

Last week, the contractor completed installing the 48-inch storm sewer along Lehigh Avenue from Henley Street to the south, past Linneman Street, and to the proposed detention pond behind Glenview Methodist Church.

Also last week, the contractor began installing the new 8-inch water main along Henley Street at Lehigh Avenue. The contractor connected to the existing 16-inch water main along Linneman and continued to work west towards Harlem Avenue.

Mass grading and excavation operations within the proposed detention pond south of Linneman Street and behind the Glenview Methodist Church are on-going. The contractor is continuing to excavate and remove the existing soils while salvaging and re-spreading the existing topsoil. The entire pond excavation and topsoil re-spreading will likely take 1-2 months to complete. We appreciate your consideration with the amount of truck traffic present during the pond construction.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new 48-inch storm sewer and 8-inch sanitary sewer at the same time between Lincoln Street and Elm Street.  Depending on work progress, the contractor is hoping to get to the intersection of Elm Street and Henley Street by the end of the week. 

Once the contractor reaches Elm Street, the mainline work will progress north on Elm Street to Dewes Street.

Also next week, the contractor will continue to install the new 8-inch water main along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. Depending on work progress, the contractor may also begin installing water main between Harlem Avenue and Washington Street.  The contractor will also likely begin the required water main testing for the new water main between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue.

Throughout the water main installation process, residents will periodically be without water due to water main shut-downs or reinstatement of water services. Residents will be notified of any scheduled water main shut-down as far in advance as possible. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during the inconvenience of these water main shut-downs. We appreciate the understanding of those residents that had their water shut-off last week as the water main work began.
