Lakeland and Eastview Land Drain Manhole Rehabilitation Project
February 5, 2015

Dear Layton City Resident:

Layton City has received bids on the Land Drain Manhole Rehabilitation Project. Whitaker Construction Company has been selected to perform this work. The purpose of this project is to improve existing manhole structures so that regular maintenance can be performed on the land drain utility lines. The scope of work for this project includes cleaning out the bottom of the manhole, preparing the manhole floor and installing concrete. In a few instances, if the work cannot be completed through the manhole lid, the contractor will excavate around the lid and remove the top section of the manhole to provide proper and safe access for the work to be completed.

The contractor will likely use a large truck to access the manhole and vacuum the manhole floor and prepare for the placement of concrete. Concrete will then be installed in the manhole. During this time land drain water will be pumped out of the manhole to allow work to be performed inside the manhole and while the concrete cures. Any repairs to landscape or sprinkling systems will be repaired by the City's contractor. In general the impacts to yards should be minimal. Approximate schedule and details for your particular yard can be discussed by contacting the project engineer.

It is anticipated that the project will begin around February 5, 2015, with completion of all work scheduled for approximately April 30, 2015. The timing of the work to be done in your area varies due to weather and the many manholes in separate locations in the City. Access to all homes will be maintained throughout the course of the project.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this project. If you have any questions or concerns about this project feel free to give me a call or email.
