Repairs to Dickinson Storm Water Line Update Nov. 16

Work to replace the damaged storm line in the Dickinson Community continues this week. Work was delayed after heavy rain last week while the contractor waited for soil on site to dry. A temporary pipe was put in ahead of the rain last week which aided in the site drying out more quickly. Work this week will focus on putting in new access paths to the site so work can be expedited, stone and pipe deliveries and installing some new storm line. It will take about two weeks to complete the storm water line installation. A large manhole will be delivered later this month and be installed. While the weather is favorable, the contractor will be worker overtime and will be on site from 7 a.m. to 8 or 9 p.m. Overall work at the site is expected to be complete in early December, weather permitting.
