Georgetown Drainage Project Status

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and the City of Georgetown report that specialty subcontractor, Uretek ICR, began additional sealing and grouting operations at the wet well at the corner of Front and Dozier Streets on August 10th, 2012. 
          Dewatering operations will begin when the sealing operation has been completed.  It is anticipated that dewatering will begin after Labor Day.  Once dewatering has been completed, the construction of the wet well and the City Hall storage pond will continue.  This construction is scheduled to be completed in early 2013.
          An extensive monitoring plan will be implemented during the dewatering.  The monitoring plan includes real time analysis of water levels and pressure from monitoring wells installed throughout the project area.  Stop points have been identified so that the dewatering can be halted immediately if necessary.
