1st update for the Barrell Lane Project.

YWD crews started running temporary lines for domestic water use on 3- 26 .

This week YWD crews began excavating services and tying in the homes to temporary lines. By the end of the day of today we expect to have all but 2 homes to be on temporaries. Due to the unusual cold temps we found the need to install bleeders on the temporary lines to prevent freezing.

  • We have started preparing the service trenches at the main for the pipe bursting, you’ll notice steel plates protecting the prepped trenches and the travelling public.

  • On Monday April 9th the 8” poly pipe is being delivered. YWD crews along with Abbott Bros. will prepare the remaining service trenches. The Ted Berry Company will mobilize on Tuesday April 10th. They will begin by welding the new polyethylene water main.
  • On Wednesday they will begin to process of bursting the existing 6” cast iron water main while installing the new 8” polyethylene water main.
  • All of next week the road will be closed to thru traffic.
  • Trash pick-up, mail, school buses and emergency access will have no issues.
  • We will have 2 flaggers for traffic control and dispatch will be notified daily.

  • Webster Ropke our General Foreman will be the point of contact for any issues on site, his cell number is 207-451-8108.
