Work to repair the damaged Dickinson storm line continues to make progress. About 80% of the new storm line is in place and the contractor has back-filled and performed soil compaction and testing in those areas. A large manhole is being installed this week and once that is in place, the remaining sections of storm line will be laid and the site back-filled. The contractor will continue to work extra hours and the remaining work this year will take about two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

Repairs to Dickinson Storm Water Line Update Nov. 16
Work to replace the damaged storm line in the Dickinson Community continues this week. Work was delayed after heavy rain last week while the contractor waited for soil on site to dry. A temporary pipe was put in ahead of the rain last week which aided in the site drying out more quickly. Work this week will focus on putting in new access paths to the site so work can be expedited, stone and pipe deliveries and installing some new storm line. It will take about two weeks to complete the storm water line installation. A large manhole will be delivered later this month and be installed. While the weather is favorable, the contractor will be worker overtime and will be on site from 7 a.m. to 8 or 9 p.m. Overall work at the site is expected to be complete in early December, weather permitting.
