PROGRESS CONTINUES FOLLOWING WEATHER DELAYS

Elliptical pipe installation continues on the Bauer Drain Relocation project. The crews are making good progress this week following significant weather delays before the Fourth of July holiday. From June 25-27, approximately 4.2 inches of rain fell at the Bauer Drain project site. This amount of rain was equal to a storm that may statistically occur once every 10-25 years.

The elliptical pipe installation is scheduled to complete this week, and the crews will continue to conventional storm sewer installation, working west towards Grimes Road. The crews will also be mobilizing within the next week to the Sycamore Creek stream mitigation portion of the project in the City of Mason.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Terry Belill, inspector, 989-996-5228.
