CURRENT WORK IN PITTMAN WASH (Fall 2009)
Utility Services will be having two monitoring wells installed for groundwater between Valle Verde and Sandwedge Channel, starting on Friday, Oct. 2.
COH Utility Services will be potholing the existing sewer line in the Wash east of Valle Verde early next week. This involves digging a small hole down until they reach the pipe so they can locate its exact location and depth. This should have very little impact on the Wash.
The City of Henderson will be doing some geotechnical work in the Wash between Valle Verde and the railroad bridge. The work is part of the design for the relocation of the sanitary sewer line and it will involve drilling a number of holes to determine the properties of the material below the surface. The contractor has been informed that he must preserve the existing vegetation wherever possible. He will access the Wash from the ramp off of Valle Verde, but they are looking into the feasibility of using the wash that joins the Pittman Wash from the south just upstream of the railroad bridge to minimize disruption to the Wash.
If you have questions or concerns about the sanitary sewer relocation project, please contact the City's Utility Services Dept. at (702) 267-5900 or send an email from the department's website using the Contact Utility Services link. You can also contact us at ProjectGreenHenNV@gmail.com. Watch this site for more information.
