The contractor has finished installing the 850 foot of sewer line. Testing will be conducted this week on the system. Thus completing phase two of the project. Phase three is in progress with the grading of the new entrance road and parking area. BG& E has completed the installation of the electrical service to the site and will be ready for when the building needs service. The natural gas services are 75% complete and should be finished in the next few days.
Upcoming Two Weeks

A lot of truck traffic will be occurring with the hauling off of rock and supplying the road bedding material.
