Construction Friday 7/21 September 30, 2006

Posted by jeanne in construction news, Urban Development.

ednesday 6/7 Out front, they’ve got to deal with the sewer connections coming out into the street from everybody’s house. Not now. They’ave got maps of the sewer system as it was put in around 1887, a year before the house was built. But all the neighbors have their sewer lines running out the back, down to the alley. The sewer is 8′ below the street out front. The lines are below that down the back. So how are they going to deal with this? Gravity is working against the system. We don’t know. The sewer engineers met Forman and talked with him yesterday.

The house shakes. It woke me out of a nap. Small vibrtations caused by I don’t know what, and big ones caused by the bulldozer pounding the hole in the street.
