With the winter months quickly approaching, the 2016 construction season at Blatchford is coming to an end. Over the last several months, crews have been hard at work preparing the site for stage one residential construction by installing select portions of the sanitary and storm sewer mains.

The sanitary sewer line connecting the future stage one residential area to the offsite sewer line is now virtually complete. This sanitary sewer line will eventually service the entire west side.

Work on the first stormwater pond is also now complete for the season with the construction of the storm sewer line as well as the inlets and outlet which allow water to enter into and drain out of the pond. Read more about the construction of the first stormwater pond in the September construction update.

Below are a few photos of the work that took place in October.

Construction crews complete work on the three inlets and one outlet for the stormwater pond. The inlets and outlets regulate the water level.

The vertical pipe is a manhole that connects to the existing sewer line. Crews are excavating to tie the new line into the existing combined sewer that currently runs across Blatchford.
