PROJECT IMPACTS

During construction work hours, residents may observe more traffic than normal along Northwood Parkway as the contractor’s crew and equipment enters and exits the reservoir area.During the coating removal process (sand blasting) construction noise levels will elevate, but due to the remoteness of the tank, the noise level projection to nearby residents is expected to be low. The contractor’s onsite generators is expected to project low noise levels.
