At the March construction meeting, the timeline for the the sewer separation project was agreed upon and is posted below. Construction signs will be ging up on the 14th of March and road milling will begin on the 16th.
A public information meeting is being planned for Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 at 7:00PM at the Civic Center to address questions and provide more information on the work about to begin.

What is it?
The Monroe Manor Project will replace the existing Combined Sewer system in Monroe Manor with a separate sanitary and storm water sewer system. This will remove a large source of storm related water from the sewer system and divert that water into the Head Creek wetland basin. The removal of this water from the pipes that carry sewage will eliminate the potential of surcharges that could get onto the road that might contain residential wastewater. In addition to the sanitary and stormwater separation the water mains, curbs, streets and sidewalks will be replaced also.
Why is it needed?
The infrastructure of the Monroe Manor has degraded to the point where repair is no longer sufficient and replacement is the most cost effective option.
When will it start?
The preliminary portions of the Project have already been completed. There is a storm sewer accessible to divert the rainwater into, the necessary engineering work has been completed, the surveying is done and the necessary money has been borrowed. Actual construction should begin this fall (2015) and be completed next summer (2016).
