The first part is a complete water and sewer reconstruction and street replacement of a section of West Pewabic Street from Lawrence to Hemlock, and on Lake Avenue from Curry Street to Lake Street. An area of Chestnut Street is also included if low bids allow, or else the engineering portion will be completed and construction will be pushed to the next phase. The second part is to re-line sanitary sewer mains in the downtown area. The third part is to replace the water main on Van Buskirk Road near Norrie Park Road. The fourth part is to replace a storm sewer on East Ayer Street near Old Country Club Road. The fifth part is to improve circulation of the water system where there have been complaints of discolored water, This includes eliminating dead ends that stagnate flow and building a bigger connection at Lake Street between Celia and Garvey streets. The sixth part is to replace 25 sanitary manholes that are failing. Coleman Engineering will conduct surveying, permitting, design, bidding for the project.
