Trout Creek Septic System is complete!

LaFever Excavating, Inc. has completed a 2 ½ year project in the hamlet of Trout Creek, New York.  LaFever Excavating, Inc. installed a septic tank and a lateral line in each home and business.  Instead of a leach field, the tanks were connected to pipes which send “gray water” to three common “absorption beds” that LaFever Excavating, Inc. installed.


LaFever Excavating awarded a $3.1 million bid

The Town of Tompkins has awarded the job of building a small diameter sewer system in the hamlet of Trout Creek to LaFever Excavating, Inc. On August 28, 2012, the town council accepted LaFever Excavating’s bid of $3.1 million and passed a resolution to proceed to the construction phase. The project will be funded by the Catskill Watershed Corporation’s (CWC) Community Wastewater Management Program. Lamont Engineers will co-ordinate the CWMP program.

The Trout Creek project will serve 55 households. LaFever Excavating plans to start construction in late October of 2012.
