Filling and grading operations are complete. Paving
and curbs are being completed through the Roadway, Parking Lots &
Associated Landscaping Phase 1 project.
Backfilling of Detention Pond 3 to sub-grade elevations and the
surrounding landscape grading is now complete. Borrowing backfill material
from the area near the south soccer fields is also complete and that
area has now been leveled. Both future Parking Lot P and the area adjacent
to the soccer fields are now ready for the next phase, which includes
installation of topping surface, final landscaping and signage. Backfilling of Detention Pond 3 is nearing completion, with the
east side of future Lot P scheduled to be filled with stone by the end
of August. The west side of the lot is currently being backfilled. Transporting
the backfill material from the area near the south soccer fields is
expected to be completed by mid-September. Pond excavation and preparation for backfilling is complete and
backfilling has resumed. Backfill material is being imported from the
south soccer fields to fill in the existing pond. Testing for proper
compaction is ongoing with backfilling operations.
The pond backfill work has resumed. Landscaping is in progress
to patch areas, which were disturbed during construction.
The tie-in of all storm drainage to the pump station is complete. Backfill
of the pond will resume in spring 2005, as weather permits.
Construction of the pumping station structure is complete. Installation
of mechanical equipment and piping, including all pumps, valves and
fittings, are now complete. Pressure testing of piping occurred in early
January. Testing of the pump station components, including pumps, control
sequences, safeties and other related equipment, began on Jan. 18, 2005.
Once testing is completed and the operation of all controls and pumps
has been verified, the contractor will return to re-route all remaining
storm water piping still feeding Detention Pond 3. Infilling of the
pond has been suspended until the spring of 2005 due to cold weather.
Construction of the pumping station structure is now complete. Installation
of electrical components needed for the pumps and control equipment
in the new pumping station is nearing completion. Installation of pumps,
valves and other mechanical equipment to be located within the pumping
station structure began on Monday, Nov. 30. Patching of asphalt surfaces
disturbed during installation of storm sewer piping has also been completed.
Infilling of the pond is ongoing.
The Detention Pond 3 project has been ongoing since early August ’04.
New storm water piping has been installed from Detention Pond 2 to Detention
Pond 3 and has been tied into parking lot K south of Detention Pond

water piping have been re-poured and will be ready for the start of
Electrical work, excavation for the new lift station and partial excavation
of the drained Detention Pond 3 was scheduled to begin the week of Sept.
Construction began in early August with the trenching and installation
of new underground storm water piping. Piping installation began at
Detention Pond 2, went through the Physical Education parking lot and
has continued to the west along the south lawn of the Physical Education
