A company will begin working on manholes around the township beginning on Monday, July 2.
A total of 29 manholes need to be rehabilitated, nine of which require traffic control or diversion, according to a press release from township officials. Two manholes will require by-pass pumping to temporarily bypass sewer flows.
Abel Recon, a company that uses a plural component spray technology known as Sprayroq to rehabilitate underground infrastructures, will need roughly 14 to 17 days to complete the project.
The work will be done in four areas:
- Work will begin with lining operations along Virginia and Hampton Drives. It will take about seven to eight days to complete this portion of the job.
- Work area No. 2 is along 2nd Street Pike and Worthington Mill Road, and will require traffic control. Abel Recon will use flaggers to control traffic. This portion of work will last five to six days.
- Twining Ford Road's manhole work will last approximately two days.
- The fourth area of work is located off of Creek Road and Almshouse Road. This portion of work will require by-pass pumping. The pumps will be rented from Keystone Pump & Power. This area will take about two days to complete.
No work will be done on Wednesday, July 4.
