Over the next two months, the second of the Town’s Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation projects will be under way. This project will consist of a process known as sliplining. Sliplining is a means of rehabilitating pipeline without excavation. Essentially, the inner-diameter of a pipe is lined with polyethylene, preventing groundwater from seeping in to the sanitary sewer system. Much of the Town’s sanitary sewer infrastructure is coming of age and this is a cost-effective method of reducing inflow to the sanitary system and in turn increasing capacity at our wastewater treatment facility. This project is anticipated to begin in Sherwood Park the week of June 11th.
I’m sure that most of you have noticed that the Couse Roundabout is open and traffic is flowing smoothly through the intersection. I believe the roundabout is a great addition to our infrastructure and will help to relieve congestion and accommodate increased traffic on the Route 4 corridor.
I am pleased to announce that Sean Mulvey has joined the Town Hall staff, assuming the responsibilities of Director of Finance. His immediate focus will be the 2013 Town budget.
Our Town suffered a loss of a young person who will be missed by her family and this community, young and old. There are no words to adequately express the profound sympathy we have for the family and for those who have suffered such a great loss.
