Contractors have until Friday to complete a few small punch list items on a major city sewer project.
The nearly $7 million project resulted in new stormwater sewers and improved existing sanitary sewer lines in downtown Seymour and surrounding neighborhoods.
Tony Akles with Strand Associates engineering presented the final change order for the Third Street sewer project to the Seymour Board of Public Works and Safety on Thursday morning.
That change reflected a $274,144 deduction in price, which Akles said was a result of this summer’s drought. The lack of rainfall allowed Dave O’Mara Contractors Inc. quicker completion of construction work.
The deduction brought the total cost of the project to $6,821,065.26.
Most of the remaining work includes seeding and sodding of grassy areas that were disturbed during construction, Akles said.
