Storm Events/Sanitary Sewer Overflow
On January 31, Public Works staff responded to a sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) in Adobe Creek near Moody Road and Old Snakey Road attributed to storm events. The concrete cap surrounding the older sewer line in Adobe Creek was damaged due to erosions from the storms ultimately resulting in a pipe failure. On February 3, Town’s contractor mobilized on site and completed the replacement of the damaged sewer pipe by February 7. To prevent further erosion around the pipe and the concrete cap, subsequent work is required during the summer once water levels recede in Adobe Creek.
The Grading Moratorium is in effect from October 1, 2022, to April 30, 2023. Construction inspections throughout the Town in effect throughout the Town for ongoing construction projects.
Saddle Court Pathway
Survey staking work started this week. Notices were sent to residents near work to be performed. With the staking, staff will be able to evaluate and plan out construction for Saddle Court Pathway in the summer.
Staff is anticipating to receive the final design plans from the design consultant by next week. Staff will then submit the design plans to the County for their approval and encroachment permit.
New Pathway Segments for 2023
As a result of the Council goal setting/work plan meeting on January 25, staff is coordinating with the Pathways Committee to identify approximately 3.6 miles of pathways to be constructed in 2023.
