                                Public Works Report

             In September, Public Works will be starting the annual sewer jetting program, which will take approximately two weeks to complete. Some residents may experience some odor as we go through your area. The odor should not last long. Please note that running a little water down the drain will help control any odor you may experience. This program is important to keep our sewer system clean and prevent any back-up issues. Along with the sewer jetting, we will be working with DES to create a video record of our collection lines for the purpose of completing a phased replacement plan. This study was made possible by a $15,000 grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.

             The initial scope of work on the street project is complete. We are working to identify other areas that would help to extend the life of our streets, and plan to replace a select number of sidewalks, as well as several drainage pans that are in dire need of repair. We hope to have this additional work completed by the end of September.

Work will begin on the new water tank on October 3, 2016, and should be completed by the end of November.

            Please welcome our new public works employee! Randy Mullens has joined the Town of Keenesburg public works team.
