Coming off a busy weekend of work which resulted in the connection to the new water main system for all businesses north of Maple, contractors are underway this week (week of May 7th) targeting sewer and storm drain work as well as water main work on both the north and south ends of the project.
With 25 percent of the project now completed, contractors are preparing to start similar water main connection/shutdown service work for businesses along Maple within the project work zone. More details on this process will be released once they are finalized later this week. Please watch for important updates.
