Projects for 2017
The Boothbay Region Water District will be taking a construction season off to concentrate on maintenance programs and rebuild cash reserves to continue its capital improvement program in 2018. Upcoming Capital Improvement Projects include:
New Storage & Maintenance Garage – Since the district formed in 2001 the district has nearly tripled in size, and grown in complexity and maintenance requirements. To put it simply the space built for the district in 1994 has been severely out grown and the district needs additional garage and maintenance space to ensure the safety of staff and to protect the critical equipment investments made over the years. This project will call for the construction of a new garage, or an addition to existing structures currently under investigation and design by Dirigo Engineering. This project is tentatively slated to begin Spring, 2018.
Logan Road Water Main Replacement Project – Logan Road, located in Boothbay Harbor, is currently served through a 6″ water main very near the end of its usable life. The Boothbay Region Water District will replace this water main with a new 8″ high-density polyethylene “black plastic pipe” water main using the district’s very successful and cost effective FORCE Account construction method, which allows district personnel to complete, and manage the project with the help of a LOCAL CONSTRUCTION COMPANY for excavation and restoration/paving. This project is slated for summer 2019.
Barlow Hill/Rice Road & Mariner Way Water Main Replacement Project – This a “twofer” currently scheduled for summer 2020. Both projects are very similar in that they are both located in East Boothbay, the existing water main in service for both locations are severely undersized, and both mains are poorly engineered. Although the existing water mains are safe and usable there exists a very real need for upgrade. The district intends to repeat its successful FORCE Account construction method here as well.
A grouping of projects moving out towards 2022 can be found within the Boothbay Region Water District System Assessment Report which was submitted to the Maine Public Utilities Commission (PUC) in June 2016. Currently Dirigo Engineering is working on Revision III of the district’s Capital Improvement Plan which is scheduled to be completed and accepted during the winter of 2017/2018 which will be published here, please stay tuned……
