Powsland St - Mitton St Sewer and Water Replacement

Powsland Mitton Sewer - Water Replacement

District 3 City Councilor Brian Batson, the Portland Department of Public Works, and Portland Water District would like to invite you to a neighborhood meeting to review the design of the above referenced project. A map at the end of this notice will assist in defining the project boundaries.
The meeting is scheduled to be held in the King Middle School library on Monday March 13, 2017 at 6:00 P.M. The meeting should last about an hour. Please join us to receive a verbal description of what the project intends to achieve.
This project will involve replacing the existing sanitary sewer as well as the existing water main on Powsland St and Mitton Street. Powsland Street and Mitton Street will also get new pavement when the project is complete. The project is scheduled for construction starting in May or June of 2017.
I have included a questionnaire which will help the city with its design. I encourage you to fill it out and either bring it with you to the meeting or feel free to mail or email it to me.
I would also like to take this opportunity to advise you to coordinate, prior to the work on this street, any underground utility work within the street right-of-way (either repairs, changes, or connections) which will affect your property.
The principal types of utility work which concern us are outlined below:
a) termination and installation of natural gas service
b) repair or replacement of sanitary sewer building connections
d) repair or replacement of storm water drain building connections
e) construction of a new building or structure resulting in the need to connect to all utilities
f) replacement or installation of a water service or fire service
h) in areas of subdivisions within the City, served by a total underground utility system, all utility connections (gas, power, telephone, public cable, etc.) would be involved.
Please make all repairs, changes or connections to the underground utility system before this street is paved, thereby avoiding excavation of our new pavement. Please note: after paving, the cost of a street opening permit for excavation work in the street will increase significantly.
We look forward to meeting with you to discuss this project. If you are unable to attend the meeting please feel free to send written comments with a neighbor or mail them to myself. I can be reached at 55 Portland Street, Portland 04101 or 874-8818 or nhs@portlandmaine.gov
