Project Schedule Update

A contract for contractor, Team Ghilotti, will be going to the Board of Public Utilities for award on November 5, 2020. Work in the field is anticipated to start in December or January, depending on weather conditions. The project will make major improvements to the North Trunk Sewer Main, a pipeline which collects sewer flows from homes and businesses in the area of Chanate Road and Mendocino Avenue. This project will upgrade and improve performance of the collection system by replacing or relocating sections of aging, inefficient, or inaccessible sewer pipelines, as well as certain water pipelines. Work will take place on portions of Chanate Road, Mendocino Avenue, Plum Drive, Lomitas Avenue, Lomitas Lane, Strawberry Drive, and certain easements not in roadways (see map below).
