Community of Poe

Project Status: Construction is complete for west side of St. Mary’s river.  East side is in progress.

Project Summary: Construction began on March 13th, 2017. Outside of the failed river crossing, the work associated with the project is primarily complete. Poe pump station passed its start-up inspections on March 6th, 2018 and the project on the west side of the St. Mary’s River is now considered complete. “Notices to Connect” letters dated March 19th, 2018 were sent to the residents on the west side of the river and homeowners in this area now have 90 days from March 19th, 2018 to get hooked up to the new sewers. Work is complete at the Mill Road Estates pump station.  Start up at the station is scheduled for May 1st. The remaining outstanding item is the completion of the revised River Crossing.  Following the failed 2nd attempt, we have contracted GME to do some additional borings in an effort to ascertain what’s blocking our path- the borings were completed April 20th and the contractor has assured us that he can bring appropriate equipment to complete the crossing based upon the results of the new borings.

Liquidated damages for the contractor failing to meet the contractual time of completion through Change Order No. 3. Contractor remains engaged in completing punch list items that include final restoration.

Glen Elm-Leo Road-Sonata Drive

Project Status: In Progress

Project Summary: Construction began in November 2017. Rothenberger has completed the majority of the collection system except for the Line C, but all of the individual pressure service lines have been drilled. To date, none of the individual grinder pump stations has been installed due to wet conditions in the yards- this has mitigated recently, and we have stressed the initiation of this work to the contractor. Work has begun at the main lift station site- RCI installed structure J-01 near the lift station, installed pipe to the chemical storage tank pad, placed stone around the lift station structures and began cleaning up the lift station site.  Rothenberger submitted a request for a time extension on the project on 4/3/18.  We responded that we would provide a 30-day extension. Rothenberger submitted a request for power for the lift station on 3/29/18. AEP contact is Erick Durnell. He met with Phil Rorrick on site on 3/15/18 and they came up with a plan for providing power and Phil Rorrick provided a load sheet.

Lift Station Emergency Power Receptacles

Project Status: Construction is complete.

Project Summary: All work was substantially complete as of October 20,2017.  After the initial installation of the receptacles, it was determined that a small add-on to the receptacle installations was required to account for the lack of an appropriate neutral in the control panels. The final work associated with this change was completed on February 9th and the installations can now be field tested again to ensure that they work with the portable generators.
