Testing set for water system expansion plan

The Town of Plymouth will be conducting geotechnical testing on  Clark Road, Beaver Dam Road, Long Pond Road and Jordan Road beginning  July 20, 2017:

This work is related to the design and permitting of the expansion of the Town’s municipal water system. This spring, Town Meeting provided funds to design and permit this project, which includes the development of two new groundwater supply facilities and the design of approximately 14 miles of water mains. The water system expansion will  include the installation of an elevated water storage tank, and the construction of valve control stations that will connect to the Town’s existing pressure zones. Construction of these proposed improvements would not occur until a subsequent Town Meeting Article approves funding.

Survey crews will be onsite throughout the month of July and into the month of August obtaining necessary information along the Town’s Right-of-Ways.  The work will continue until July 28, depending on the weather.

The work includes drilling approximately 120 2½-inch diameter probes, 10 feet below the ground, to obtain information on pavement thickness, depth to ground water, and soil conditions. This data will assist the Town with the design of the water main construction activities. The probes will be spaced every 400 – 500 feet along each road. 

Any questions regarding this project may be directed to Jonathan Beder, Plymouth Director of Public Works, at (508) 830-4162, ext. 105, or to Ryan Trahan, P.E. of Environmental Partners Group, Inc., at (617) 657-0200 or rjt@envpartners.com.
