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.
