Hamilton Southeastern Utilities’ sanitary sewer located along Mud Creek in Avalon section three will be undergoing new construction. Site preparation will begin on December 5, 2016 and excavating work will begin January 10, 2017. This work is expected to last between 45 and 60 days depending on weather and working conditions.
This project will require more equipment on site than usual which could result in more noise and light than what is normally experienced in the area. Out of courtesy, we will do our best to keep the noise level to a minimum during the early morning and evening hours.
As a matter of safety, pedestrian walkways within the work-site (shown below) will be temporarily closed to traffic throughout the construction period.
Due to poor weather conditions, the final grading and restoration of the lawn areas may be delayed until spring.
During this process, sewer service to all residence WILL NOT be interrupted.

The following work is being performed in the listed subdivisions:
Mainline Camera Work
We will remove the sewer cleaning signs from the area as soon as the cleaning has been completed in that area. If the sign is still posted all of the cleaning has not been completed.
The notifications above are for our customer’s convenience and although we try to keep these up to date the best we can there may be work in other areas of our service area throughout the year
Why is this work important?
As waste-water networks age, the risk of deterioration, blockages, and collapses becomes a major concern. As a result, municipalities worldwide are taking proactive measures to improve performance levels of their sewer systems. Cleaning and inspecting sewer lines are essential to maintaining a properly functioning system; these activities further a community’s reinvestment into its wastewater infrastructure.
Mainline Camera Work
As mentioned in the sewer cleaning work description, aging waste-water systems need to be monitored to ensure the highest levels of productivity. To ensure the integrity of our system, we use in-line cameras to video over 430,000 feet of pipe every year.
Lateral Video Inspection
For the same reasons we video our mainline pipes, we inspect the lateral pipe running from residential and commercial properties to guarantee functionality and integrity.
