We will be happy to see you and help you out!!
An update for you. As you know, we had hoped to be further along in the process, but there were some hurdles to overcome before we could start the formal plans, with the primary thing being some critical alignment decisions that had to be made in coordination with the MCWA, NYS Thruway, and the Town of Batavia. Examples includes the location where the water main will cross the NYS Thruway and proposed dead end main locations. Once those decisions were made, we were able to proceed with the detailed design plans and various permits. In addition, the reality is that Covid and staffing issues (both at CPL and the various reviewing agencies) did impact things.
The various permits and approvals that will be required for this project include:
The design documents have been reviewed by the MCWA and NYSDOT, with comments provided in late July 2021. These were viewed as the most critical, as it meant we were able to finalize the remaining permit applications and finalize the required easements. All remaining permits and approvals for the agencies above are in review/processing. Timing of the remaining approvals is not known and out of our control, but we anticipate to have the majority back by late September.
The last key item will be the easements, with 8 permanent and 4 temporary. The easement maps have been prepared along with the legal descriptions. We have also obtained property information from Genesee County Real Property. These documents have been provided to the MCWA, who will prepare actual easement. Once we have the final and complete easements back from the MCWA we will have one of our team members obtain signatures from the property owners. Our goal is the end of September, but again other factors come into play.
Once we have the easements in place along with approvals from the MCWA, USDA-RD, and Genesee County Health Department, we will be able to obtain the blessing from the USDA-RD to bid the project. The goal is October, but again things could change. Award in December.
Last, I do want to point out that materials are a major issue, specifically lead times. So even if we get the project out to bid in October with contracts in place in December, the contractors will likely be waiting on pipe for several months. In fact, we have heard 4-6 months from some contractors. Just want you to be aware.
