WALTON (WBNG) — Work has started on a $1.2 million project designed to reduce flooding in the Town of Walton.

The soil reclamation project is eight years in the making, and will involve removing more than 50,000 yards of soil.

This will allow the water to drain into the space and away from Delaware Street, which often floods.

The project manager says the project is so important because the town floods far too often.

Summer 2017 Updates

  • The LaFever Excavating, Inc. staff has been busy working on CWC septic installations, driveways, and barnyard projects between raindrops
  • We are currently working with the CWC on a video of the installations of a septic system from start to finish.
  • Thank you to Matthew Lewis, driver, who recently traveled to Montgomery, Alabama where we acquired a 2017 Mack truck to add to our fleet!

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.
