Progress Report

On Thursday, May 20, Prein&Newhof met with CL Trucking & Excavating and their tree clearing subcontractor, Integrity Tree Services, to discuss tree removal in the public road right-of-way (ROW) and easement areas. Prein&Newhof survey crews placed stakes to mark the proposed water main location and ROW or easement lines. For reference, stakes with blue flags that say “WM HERE” show the location of where the water main will go, stakes with orange flags that say “ROW” or “ESMT” show the location of the public right-of-way or easement limits.

CL Trucking & Excavating will be marking trees that need to be removed for water main construction the week of May 31 to June 4.

Integrity Tree Services is scheduled to begin tree clearing on June 7. Tree clearing for the entire project area is expected to take 3 weeks.
