After we complete a water or sewer repair, we must then come back and repave or re-concrete the area we impacted as part of our work. This multi-million dollar effort improves streets and sidewalks throughout our service area as a result of our work underground.
We are responsible for asphalt and concrete replacement after emergency water and sewer repairs or infrastructure upgrade projects. When a job is complete, the location is given to the restoration contract, which sends asphalt, concrete, and line painting crews out to restore the area to its former condition. When work happens on your street, it may be a few weeks until paving and concrete crews return. Crews move in an orderly fashion around our service area completing work, focusing on all the locations in one area before moving onto the next.
