Stanford Lake Site - Wet Well Excavation and Base Slab

Between Valley Road, Central Street to 3947 North Street (Sewer Pump Station 002)

Construction Overview
The Municipality of Chester is beginning Phase 2 of the Stanford Lake Road Wastewater Servicing Project. Phase 2 consists of a complete reconstruction of sanitary pump station 002 located at 3947 North Street, and new twin force mains from the station crossing Central Street to Valley Road. The underground work is scheduled to commence the week of March 25-29 and will take approximately 1 month to complete. The purpose of the work is to install sanitary sewer infrastructure and increase capacities for future development within the Municipality of Chester. The work will result in traffic disruptions and restricted driveway access in the areas of construction. Every effort will be made to minimize the disruption to residents in order to complete the works.

What to Expect
Dust, noise, and heavy equipment are common elements of construction. We are committed to providing a work site that is safe and orderly. Temporary disruptions to services should be minimal and we will work with adjacent property owners to minimize any inconvenience.

Work Hours
Working hours are generally 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. It should be anticipated that the contractor might choose to work longer hours and weekends to complete the work as per Noise By-Law No. 135.

Special Needs
Individuals with special needs who may be uniquely impacted by this project should contact the Project Manager as soon as possible. We will work with you to minimize your inconvenience as much as possible.
