ISSUANCE OF ENERGENCY CONTRACT FOR SEWER LINE REPLACEMENT UPSTREAM OF FOOT BRIDGE TO BASEBALL FIELD AND FIELD HOUSE
During the course of routine inspection of sewer lines it was discovered that approximately 720 feet of main 12 inch trunk line near the Middle Fork of the Holston River just upstream of the Chilhowie football field house and foot bridge to the baseball field has become deteriorated. It was broken down in several places and inundated with roots. The line was in danger of both surcharging into the river and collecting infiltration in the line, particularly during times of high water, resulting in discharge at the sewer treatment plant.
Teaters Trucking of Chilhowie is being contracted to replace the line. Teaters has worked on many projects in Chilhowie and Smyth County such as this as well as in many other localities in Southwest Virginia. They are available to begin the project by the first/middle of May. Materials to be installed include a aforementioned 720 feet of pipe, stone and miscellaneous parts. Labor will be charged at $18 per foot.
