Water and sewer work to begin in HenningPublished 12:04pm Friday, August 16, 2013
Preparation for water and sewer construction has begun in Henning, according to the Citizen’s Advocate.
The project will cost $3.66 million to improve the town’s water and sewer system. The first part of the project will replace all of the water and sewer lines on portions of Marshall, Fergus, Milne, Poulson and Peterson avenues.
The project is expected to start soon and will last through the end of October. The final paving of the project will finish in the summer of 2014.
Parts of the water system being replaced are cast iron mains, which are prone to breaking due to age. The city has experienced multiple water breaks and sewer failures in the proposed project area, and the project is meant to alleviate main breaks and sewer failures.
Steps will be taken to minimize the amount of disruption for residents during construction. Some residents may not be able to drive to their home when it is happening in front of their property, however.
Water may also be shut off for shot periods of time and residents will be notified before hand. There are no plans for the disruption of sewer service.
A number of trees will also need to be removed due to their location in order to complete construction.
Typical work days on the project are expected to start at 7 a.m. and last until 7:30 p.m.
