CROMWELL — Turkey Creek Regional Sewer District’s monthly meeting Monday, Sept. 19 was short and sweet, with members getting the good news of South Shore Waco Drive Area Projects coming in on time and under budget, according to superintendent Timothy Woodward.
As of Sept. 19, Mason Engineering was off the job, having completed work on the wastewater treatment plant project, Contract Three. Woodward stated the project was one of two in the district completed under budget. “They did a heck of a job,” he emphasized.
Contract Two, which includes 18,000 feet of piping and three lift station upgrades on the south side of SWAP, is also largely completed by Seldge Construction, that is off the job except for “punch list items.” Like Mason Engineering, Seldge also brought its project in under budget.
The largest of the SWAP contracts, Contract One, on the south shore, with Niblock Excavating and Asphalt, is expected to be “substantially complete” Nov. 1, Woodward said. The estimated hookup date for homeowners in the south shore area is Nov. 1, from which time they will have a six-month window to do so, putting the deadline at April 30. Woodward emphasized these dates are still only estimations.
Finally, the board heard the new lift station at Vawter Park is expected to be completed by the first week of October.
Woodward, who has 27 years of experience and was named 2016 manager of the year, commented SWAP has “worked out very well.”
The next monthly meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17 at the district office, 4852 North 1200 West, Cromwell.
