From the Mayor of Jamestown:
As many of you have heard me say before, our goal is to have our water and roads (not including Andersen) repairs completed by August so we can bring our Community home. This won’t be an easy process for our Community, but it’s necessary to bring everyone home.
We met with Duran Excavating yesterday, the contractor hired to repair our water distribution system and roads, to review their schedule. Work is beginning today. Their current schedule is:
|Construction of temporary water line from WTP to Mesa St
Restoration of the Town’s water tanks
|6/5 – 6/20|
|Replacement of the WTP sand filters||6/5 – 6/13|
|Activation of the water lines on Mesa, Spruce, 16th, Pine, Porphyry, Gillespie||6/28|
|Construction of the water line and Ward St||6/14 – 6/27|
|Activation of the water line on Ward St||6/28|
|Construction of the water line and Main St (Ward to JVFD)||6/25 – 7/16|
|Activation of the water line on Main St (Ward to JVFD)||7/18|
|Construction of the water line on High St and 15th St||7/9 – 7/22|
|Activation of the water line on High St and 15th St||7/23|
|Construction of the water line on Lower Main St and 12th||7/17 – 8/3|
|Activation of the water line on Lower Main St and 12th||8/4|
|Construction of Ward St Box Culvert||6/30 – 7/29|
|Construction of Gillespie Gulch Culvert (being redesigned)||TBD|
|Construction of permanent water line from WTP to Mesa St||TBD|
Please note that the TBDs are currently begin discussed with AMEC and Duran. The permanent line behind the WTP will be installed when the water level is down and it’s safe for Duran to work in the water.
Duran will be working 7-days per week from 7am to 7pm. These are the same hours as Colt & Steel.
Please note that this schedule will change as we get into the project. I sincerely apologize that things have moved quickly and I didn’t have a schedule to communicate sooner. I will continue to do my best to keep everyone updated as more information becomes available. If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me. My cell phone works at home.
