Infiltration and Inflow (I&I) Study: May 2017
The Township has contracted with Hazen and Sawyer Engineers to conduct an Infiltration and Inflow (I&I) Study. Flow and groundwater monitoring took place during the month of March. Data analysis of the monitoring will be conducted during the month of April. It is anticipated that smoke testing will begin in certain areas of the Township in May. These areas will be determined after the data is analyzed. Once the testing areas are determined, home owners will be notified via mail as to the exact date(s) to which the test will begin, as well as an anticipated end date. Detailed information regarding smoke testing will also be included. Crews on behalf of Hazen and Sawyer will be present when the smoke testing is conducted, including the designated areas.
More information on each of these projects will be posted as it becomes available.
