SANITARY SEWER WORK – November 12 & 13, 2013

Arold Construction, under sub-contract with the City of Ithaca, will be on the Commons Tuesday-Wednesday, November 12 & 13, 2013, to rehabilitate the sanitary sewer main serving the Commons. The lining of the existing sanitary main is called CIPP, cured-in-place-piping. A cured-in-place pipe is one of several trenchless rehabilitation methods used to repair existing pipelines. CIPP is a jointless, seamless, pipe-within-a-pipe with the capability to rehabilitate pipes.

Notices have gone out to all properties affected by this work:

 Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 8:00AM-1:00PM (Bank Alley)

·         102 N Tioga Street – 111 N Tioga Street

Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 11:00AM-6:00PM

·         101 E State Street – 128 E State Street

Wednesday, November 13, 2013, 8:00AM-3:00PM

·         142 E State Street – 224 E State Street

During this process the sanitary sewer service will be temporarily interrupted for up to eight (8) hours during the date and time specified for construction for the properties listed above.

We ask that the specific properties listed above minimize their water use and eliminate such activities as laundry, dishwashing and showers during the time specified for construction. Please keep toilet flushing to a minimum. Any sump pumps connected to the sewer system must be disconnected and/or discharged elsewhere to avoid backups in basements. The sanitary sewer will be temporarily interrupted and wastewater will not be able to exit buildings as it normally would.

Any questions please contact the Project Office at 607-216-8873 or Tammy Baker, Project Outreach Coordinator, at 607-220-8425.

We apologize for any inconvenience that the construction activities may cause you. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
