In preparation of a sewer project, that involves directionally drilling a 12 inch force
main alongside the existing pathway, a geotechnical survey will be performed on
April 21st and 22nd, weather permitting. This involves using a small drilling rig,
pictured below, to perform small test borings to determine the suitability of the
underlying soil along the route where the directional boring of the force main will later be installed.
The Town has been informed that the company performing the test borings,
Cardno ATC, will strive to keep the pathway open for foot and bicycle traffic.
There will be several separate borings, and they will take place between Town
Hall Park and the Rail Trail Bridge over Starkey Ave. Please be cautious when
encountering the rig and move briskly by.
