Pugwash Central Water Supply Construction Update – November 25th, 2016
On behalf of the Municipality of Cumberland and the Village of Pugwash, WSP Engineering and Dexter Construction would like to provide a construction update to provide a snap shot into the upcoming weeks ahead of us.
• Water Main Crew #1 will be working on Murray Road from Route 6 and continue on Pleasure Cove Road installing water main.
• Water Main Crew #2 will be completing the section of water main between Durham Street and Palmerston Bridge. This crew will then follow Crew #1 installing water laterals on Murray Road and Pleasure Cove Road. If Crew #2 catches Crew #1, Crew #2 may move and work on Murray Road between Pleasure Cove Road and Pugwash River Road.
• Clean-up Crew #1 will be working their way back from Crowley Road, tidying up any loose ends through the village and following the water main crews as they work through Murray Road and Pleasure Cove Road to the connection at Pugwash River Road.
• Many water services have been predrilled ahead of the water main crews to the edge of the Transportation, Infrastructure & Renewal Right of Way to service your property. Of note, ahead of the lateral crew, a proposed location for your water service will be identified with a stake at the Transportation, Infrastructure & Renewal Right of Way, either Sam or Jack from WSP Engineering or a designated representative from Dexter Construction will contact you to discuss the final location for the water service to be installed that allows you to continue the service to your house at a later date. This activity will continue ahead of the water main crews.
• Reinstatement of streets will continue as pipe work becomes completed and the water main has been pretested with the placement of asphalt, shouldering and landscaping.
• Please note the Contractors work plans are subject to change depending on the availability of work force, the current work at hand and location of the work. You may notice the number of crews fluctuating on a week by week basis on this project.
• Traffic control methods are submitted and reviewed by TIR and on this project and you will experience a “Stop and Go” system where you are “Stopped” and the flagger flips the sign to allow you to “Go”.
· The coming months will see construction of the Water Treatment Plant, further well development and construction of the water storage reservoir.
· We are continuing to work on our water rate study and application to the Nova Scotia Utility Review Board. As part of this, we will determine the final Capital Charge that each property owner will be required to pay. We are certain that the capital charge will not exceed the $5000 as previously mentioned.
