The floodwall joint sealant replacement and repair project that was awarded to Grimmer Construction has been substantially completed. Additional floodwalls in section 5-1 were also repaired as part of the project.
The Burr Street South Pump Station bid was awarded to Sweney Electric last meeting. The Flygt pumps for the station are ready. The project should take 10-12 weeks to complete.
