Permitting Phase (Completed)
During the permitting phase, the required water quality permits and certifications are obtained from County, State and Federal agencies. Permit applications are prepared and meetings are conducted with the NC Division of Environment and Natural Resources and the US Army Corps of Engineers.
Property Easement/Acquisition Phase (Completed)
The City's real estate staff works directly with affected citizens to acquire Storm Drainage Easements (SDEs). The City requests that affected property owners grant SDEs to provide the City access to their property to perform needed improvements and future maintenance.
The project schedule for this phase depends almost entirely on the responsiveness of property owners. Timely responses from citizens and donations of SDEs expedite the repairs. The bid phase begins after all easements are acquired.
Bid Phase (Completed July 2007)
During the bid phase, the final plans are circulated to qualified contractors for a competitive bidding process. By state law, the lowest responsible bidder is awarded the construction contract. Through this process United Construction was awarded the contract.
Construction Phase (Completed June 2008)
The project is currently in the warranty phase.
Please feel free to contact William Harris if you have any questions or concerns about the project or construction.
