Water Treatment Plant

Work continues on the old water treatment plant site. The contractor is working on reconstructing the shoreline along Budd Lake. A driveway and parking area will be installed later this year. In addition, the landscaping contractor will be onsite this fall to complete the final restoration of this site as well as the new water treatment plant site. Here is a picture of a concrete retaining wall along the shore of Budd Lake.

Albion Avenue Reconstruction

Construction is progressing with the installation of new storm sewer and pavement at the Lair Road/Albion intersection. The underground contractor is also installing new water services along the project. The contractor has removed the east side of the pavement and south bound traffic is moving through the project. The traffic control will be changing slightly next week. See the below announcement for the opening of east bound Lair Road.

Albion Avenue will remain south bound traffic only and north bound traffic will follow the current detours. North bound traffic on Albion will NOT be able to go west on Lair Road. Drivers are asked to please obey all traffic signs and use caution when traveling through the construction area.

Airport Construction

The construction at the airport is complete with the exception of some final punch list items. All of the runways and the taxiway will be open for day/night traffic this weekend. The new PAPI's and REIL's will not be used on the main runway until final certification from the FAA. In addition, this fall the main hangar, which used to be blue, was repainted to more closely match the surrounding structures. Here is a picture a portion of the newly painted hangar.

Elm Street Construction

Construction of Elm Street is nearly complete for 2013. The topsoil has been placed and the street will be opened to traffic this weekend. The contractor will be in town next week to install the hydro-mulch for the winter. Sodding and the final lift of asphalt will be installed in the spring of 2014. Here is a photo of SMC installing the first lift of asphalt on the north end of the project.

Water Treatment Plant

The water treatment plant started sending out finished water to the distribution system about two weeks ago. All the systems are running as expected and the contractor is working to finish up the interior spaces as well as starting on some punch list items. The parking lots have been completed and landscaping will begin shortly. The project is scheduled for substantial completion in mid-October. Here are some interior pictures of the operator's room, solids contact basin, softening room, and entry.
