CONSTRUCTION NOTICE
SEWER REPAIR WORK WILL COMMENCE IN YOUR AREA ON OR ABOUT:

  Date:  Mon, June 22, 2015   Anticipated Start Time: 9:00 am  Anticipated End Time: 7:00 pm

 The BOROUGH OF KEYPORT has contracted with NORTH AMERICAN PIPELINE SERVICES, LLC and their subcontractor, ALLSTATE POWER VAC, INC. under the Sanitary Sewer Upgrades Inflow & Infiltration Reduction Program for work in your area.  The work will be completed using a special “NO DIG” rehabilitation method that is used to renovate defective sewers without the need to excavate.  No excavation means less disruption, dirt, and inconvenience to residents.  In this trenchless process, known as “cured-in-place”, a flexible lining material is placed in the sewer pipe and cured with heat to become a rigid reinforcement for the existing pipe. 

 While this method is minimally disruptive, it may be necessary to temporarily block off sections of streets for heavy equipment.  Every attempt will be made to avoid inconveniencing area residents while work is being completed.

 During the lining process we will be using diesel engines for bypass pumping and electrical generation.  They produce some amount of noise, a situation that cannot be avoided.  We will do everything possible to minimize the noise and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

 During the installation period (about 11 hours), your sewers will be temporarily blocked off.  Please limit your use of water during this time as each house connection has only limited storage capacity up to the main sewer.  Limited use of the toilet or washing hands is acceptable; heavy usage such as laundry, long showers, baths or running water for extended periods must be avoided. This is to prevent sewage backing up into your house or basement.  Normal water usage may resume when all Allstate Power Vac, Inc. work trucks have left the area.

 When the lining process is completed, a distinctive odor similar to model glue may be noticed.  This sometimes occurs in low-level rooms such as basements. In the unlikely event that this should occur in your home, simply vent the area by opening nearby windows until the odor disappears.

 If you have any questions, concerns or problems please do not hesitate to call Allstate Power Vac, Inc at 732-815-0220.  If within 48 hours you have not received a response please contact the Borough’s consulting engineer, Hatch Mott MacDonald at 732-780-6565
