The Richter Road water main extension project in Plymouth is done. Utility Superintendent Donnie Davidson gave the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety an update on the project on Monday night.
“We have requested a substantial of completion letter. We are withholding retainer in the amount of $6,230.25 upon completion of their punchlist items which are fairly minor,” said Davidson.
The board did approve a request that the mayor sign the substantial letter of completion once Davidson reviews all of the project checklist items.
Davidson added that the utility crews have done some work to alleviate flooding issues on 4th and Harrison Street.
“A year ago we purchased two properties and we demolished the homes and this year had a basin installed. We may want to expand that basin sometime when funds become available. That is a chronic area for flooding. I think this will help the problem considerably, but I’m not 100 percent sure it’s going to solve all of the problems there.”
If the area becomes a hazard, fencing may be installed to deter accidents.
