PROPOSED BLACK DIRT SANITARY SEWER REPLACEMENT
ATTENTION RESIDENTS, COMMUTERS, AND PEDESTRIAN IN THE VICINITY OF ELM ST., BONNELL ST., BONNEL PL., LAKE AVE., LIBERTY ST., CANTRELL AVE., AND CLEMSON PARK:
The City of Middletown has begun construction of the Proposed Black Dirt Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project. The Construction contract was awarded to Boyce Excavating, Inc. (Slate Hill, NY).
Construction activities began in February 2018 and work is anticipated to be complete by October 2018. Generally, the contractor is permitted to work between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. However, some night time work will be necessary during this project. All night time shifts will be coordinated with the City.
Much of the project will be constructed on private property within easements obtained by the City of Middletown for the new sewer line. Boyce Excavating will coordinate with property Owners when work is being performed on their property and when work will affect access to homes. All private property will be restored to pre-existing conditions prior to construction completion.
Work in public rights of way (i.e. streets) will involve vehicular periodic traffic detours and flagging operations. Pedestrian traffic detours will also be required at certain times.
Questions or concerns should be directed to:

Department of Public Works
We regret the inconvenience, and appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we continue to rebuild our City infrastructure.
Note: Please note that it’s illegal to connect sump pumps, roof gutters, downspouts and stormsewer discharges to any Sanitary Sewers as this causes excess flows to our Sanitary Sewer System.
We appreciate your cooperation.

Dear City of Middletown Residents/Businesses,
At the direction of Governor Cuomo the City of Middletown has received a grant from New York State Department of Health to replace Lead Water Services for homes or businesses that are in the City of Middletown and are supplied by City of Middletown Water System. If you suspect that you have a Lead, Brass or Galvanized Water Service line that extends from City Water Mains that are in the Street and into your house/building, please call us and we will arrange for a visit to verify the material of the water service.
The grant will pay for replacement of the water service from City Water Main in the Street and into your house/building, but prior to connection point to your water meter.
Please check construction material of your Water Service entering your house/building at the penetration point from the outside, and report it to Department of Public Works at 343-3169, ASAP, as the grant funds are limited.
Please call us also if you are unsure of the type of water service that you may have and we'll be happy to visit and help make the determination.
