WHAT: Sanders Utility Construction Co., under Charlotte Water’s supervision, will begin construction set up and preparation for Phase III of the Briar Creek Sewer Improvement Project. This project will enhance system performance and protect the water quality in Briar Creek.

WHEN: Mid- to late June 2016

WHERE: Construction easements along Briar Creek from Country Club Drive and Dunlavin Way to Hilliard Drive and Eastway Drive (see map).

HOW: Activities will include:

  • Moving equipment on site – Contractor will move construction equipment and
    materials to permanent and temporary easements along the project site.
  • 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.
  • Security fencing – Crews will be installing temporary six-foot green security on
    temporary and permanent easements along the project route. The fencing will help
    secure the construction area and will have view-blocking material. Erosion and
    sedimentation control measures may be required to protect against erosion.
