Several ongoing projects with the Plymouth Utility Department are on schedule.
Utility Superintendent Donnie Davidson reported to the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety that the wastewater treatment plant is about 70 percent complete. Process equipment start-up was successful and the next major phase is going on this week. The company is ahead of schedule and will be substantially complete by November.
The roofing project at the Ledyard Water Treatment Plant started this week and it will be done in two weeks. The winning bid for this project was $95,922.
The water main flushing process is done. He says it gets a little better each year this is done. The water quality is at a much higher level and discoloration issues have been remedied.
Davidson concluded with his report by reminding the board that Skylane Drive will be closed at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 31 through 5 p.m on Tuesday, Aug. 1 to replace a culvert at the old railroad bed just east of the street department. He said the culvert is undersized for the current water flow. Flooding issues have occurred so this will alleviate those issues.
