The weather today is chilly with a few snow flurries. The rain over the weekend helped settle the new pipe ditches. We, (GASD) are pleased with the rough finish over the laid pipe but want to remind future customers that what they see is not the finished product. Paul Irwin Construction of Laurie is the sub -contractor working on Tony's Point. Paul is digging on the SE side of the point and is up to Monica Bartels property. Ridge Hill Crews are working on Dunwanderin and have dug for the lift station and are laying the collector pipes along Sunset. Sterling Construction is in the Mais Maring area today. They should be ready next Monday to excavate the site for the Towering Oak lift station. A blast crew was necessary to break the rock today. The process to do that is daunting and very regulated. Collector lines have been laid in the following areas off Towering Oak Rd : Old Hickory, Gentle Slope Ln., Sunny Slope, Red Oak, and a portion of KS Rd. The grinder cans are still not here. They are plumbed with the ports, rails, and bases off site. We expected to see them last Mon. but no luck. Two higher horsepower pumps for the Tony's Point lift station are still on back order. A change was necessary to eliminate pumping twice. The sewage from the TP lift station, (no pun intended) will now flow directly into the main line above Blue Anchor Condos. The Millstone Townhomes should be the first on line as that system is a gravity line directly into the TP lift station. Rosetta Construction, (Contract 1) should finish clearing and begin pipe laying soon. The crews are very appreciative of the goodies baked by ladies in the area. Please be careful around the construction area. The guys in the red trucks are the inspectors on the job. If you have any questions or concerns, they are the ones to talk to or any GASD board member. Refer to the web site for phone numbers or email. Thanks, Dave Taylor, Chairman, GASD.
