Overhills Park Sewer Extension Project Update
October 2, 2017

Letters were mailed to all property owners in the area on September 29, 2017 giving them the following update of the project status.

The contractor is expected to be back on site the last week of October to continue with installation of the sewer laterals and mains.

The delay was due to a needed redesign to avoid the existing 36-inch pressurized force main along E. Manchester Road that is owned by Harnett County which serves Fort Bragg. Once the NCDOT right-of-way was staked to show where the sewer main would be constructed and the locations of the existing utilities were marked, it was determined that the proposed sewer line could not be constructed without acquiring easements from property owners across the frontage of their properties.

The contractor has also been delayed installing service laterals due to the poor subgrade materials beneath the existing roadways within the subdivision. Approval was needed from NCDOT to allow the contractor to install the remaining service laterals by open-cut methods instead of boring beneath the road.

Due to these unexpected delays, it is anticipated that the construction of the sewer system will be completed by January 2018.  The Public Utilities Division will be providing information about what steps property owners need to take to connect to the sanitary sewer system at a later date.
