Wastewater Collection System Improvements


The Town of Elkton has contracted with Commonwealth Excavating/Insituform Technologies, LLC for improvements to its wastewater collection system. The work includes the cleaning and rehabilitation of sanitary sewer pipes with a cured-in-place lining, and the replacement of existing sanitary sewer with new sanitary sewer.
The duration of the contract for this work is 300 days from the effective date of May 19, 2020 and, unless there are extraordinary circumstances, the work will be conducted on weekdays between the hours of 7 A.M. and 7 P.M..
Most of the work under this contract will be done in public rights of way or in public easements through private property.  In order to keep the public and property owners aware of this work, the Town will be posting the contractor’s weekly schedule of planned work on the Town website.  In addition, the contractor is required to provide seventy-two (72) hours advanced notice to businesses and residences that might be impacted by the work.  Possible impacts include excavation and fill on private property, traffic disruptions, noise, and temporary, short-term restrictions on wastewater production while the work is underway.
The Town’s goal is to keep residents and businesses aware of and prepared for this work and to minimize disruptions. 

The schedule for the week of  September 8, 2020 has manhole replacement work to be conducted in the following locations: Wirt St replacing MH’s 98, 97, 99, 100
