Street Closures for Thursday, May 23, 2019:
- Gold Cup Drive - Miller Pipeline will be working on Gold Cup Drive at the corner of Blue Ridge Street. Flaggers and signage will be in place as needed. Please use caution if in this area, or avoid, if possible.
Sewer System Rehabilitation - *UPDATE*
During the month of May, a contractor for the Town of Warrenton (BLD) will be sealing the sewer lateral connections on all of the sewer mains that were recently relined in the Rady Basin. This will further reduce inflow and infiltration where the house lateral connects with the Town's sewer mains. (See graphic below).
Please keep all commode lids closed. The cleaning process prior to the lateral sealing sometimes
causes water to splash from commodes.
For questions, concerns or complaints, contact Larry K. Oliver with the Public Utilities Department at
540-347-1858 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
