  • The construction area will be beside the Derita Branch Creek between 36th Street, North Graham Street, and West Sugar Creek Road.
  • Updates will be posted on this website and NextDoor.
  • Photobook of water and wastewater construction
  • What to expect during construction

What to Expect:

  • Clearing – Trees, shrubs, bushes and other vegetation within the construction easement area will be removed. Tree stumps will be removed and holes filled. Debris will be transported off-site. CLTWater is coordinating with an arborist to only remove what is needed to allow excavation of wastewater pipe. When and where possible, trees are preserved.
  • Pipe delivery and storage – Pipe is delivered and stored within the construction easements along the creek.
  • Establishing a safe work zone – Fencing will be put in place and pipe will be stabilized to prevent it from moving.
  • Trench digging
  • Tunneling under major roads
  • Placing pipe and backfilling
  • Underground rock blasting to install the pipe. Residents may hear a warning horn just prior to the blast. The area will be monitored with seismographs to gauge earth vibration levels as required. Blasting is a standard construction procedure and all safety precautions will be taken.
  • Construction traffic (excavators, dump trucks) along the creek, within the easements or road right-of-way.

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