What to expect

Construction can be loud, dirty, and inconvenient. Crews will be using large excavators and storing materials on construction easements.

  • Clearing – trees, shrubs, bushes, and other vegetation within the construction easement area will be removed. Debris will be transported off-site.
  • Pipe delivery and storage – Pipes and other equipment are delivered and stored within the construction easements.
  • Establishing a safe work zone – Fencing will be put in place and pipes will be stabilized to prevent it from moving.
  • Trench digging.
  • Placing pipe and backfilling.
  • Customers may feel a rumble occasionally between 9 am and 4 pm.
    • Crews may remove rock formations by blasting or rock hammers.
    • Property owners within the 500-foot radius of blast sites were contacted.\
    • Blasting is a standard construction procedure and all safety precautions will be taken.
    • Residents may hear a warning horn and feel a slight vibration or rumble similar to a slammed door or thunder.
  • Construction traffic (excavators, dump trucks) in the easements and road right-of-way. Once the pipe is installed near your property, you may continue to see construction traffic along the easements until the pipe is tested, manholes are adjusted and restoration is complete.

  • ​The gravity sewer serves residences and businesses along Beaverdam Creek in Charlotte.
  • The area serviced by this gravity sewer line has seen a high rate of infill development and changes in land use related to the redevelopment near Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.
  • To design the optimal route for this project, engineers have taken many factors into account including engineering specifications, human and environmental impacts, regulatory requirements, and budget. 

​Properties that will be directly affected by construction will be contacted to discuss easement agreements. Areas near construction will be notified before construction. 

​Estimated $2.6 Million
