In late March, Charlotte Water will be surveying and conducting fieldwork along the Irwin Creek tributary in the Brookhill and South End neighborhoods. In addition to personnel, customers could see minor clearing activities in the area, survey stakes/flags, paint markings on the ground, and machinery used for geotechnical borings. These borings involve drilling a hole roughly 4 inches in diameter, and upward of 30 feet deep, to determine the presence of rock in the area. In areas inaccessible for the drill rig, the refraction microtremor (ReMi) method or hand auger method will be used. Please see the March 2021 notification(PDF, 2MB) for additional information.
Charlotte Water is conducting preliminary engineering work along the Irwin Creek tributary in the Brookhill and South End neighborhoods for an important wastewater pipe replacement project that will expand the future capacity of the wastewater system in the area. In mid-November, subcontractors for Charlotte Water began surveying and conducting fieldwork including inspections and surveys of manholes and wastewater lines along the route, in the public rights-of-way. To inspect the condition of the pipe, crews conduct interior video surveillance, which includes running cameras from CCTV vehicles into the manholes. Crews will also perform smoke testing in the existing wastewater pipe to locate leaks in the sewers that allow rainwater, creek water, and other stormwater run-offs to enter the system. More information can be found in the surveying mailer located under Project Documents.
