The Old Town and Lake Pinehurst Sewer Rehabilitation Project encompasses work around the Old Town Pinehurst Village area and Lake Pinehurst. The team for these projects includes the Owner, Moore County (Owner), Hydrostructures, PA (Engineer) and Atlantic Coast Contractors (Prime Contractor).
Old Town (click here for map) - Moore County owns and operates the water and sewer systems serving the Village of Pinehurst. Of their entire sewer system, Moore County experiences the most maintenance problems with the sewer in Old Town. This sewer was installed in the early 1900s and is primarily composed of terracotta clay sewer mains and hand laid brick manholes. These materials are considered inferior by today’s standards. Due to its age and substandard materials, this sewer has deteriorated and is beginning to fail.
Lake Pinehurst (click here for map) - A number of sewer mains are located directly behind houses on the lakefront and are very difficult to access. The County has experienced a number of sewer main failures along the lake over the past few years, and future failure could be catastrophic and result in expensive repairs and remediation. This work will complete sewer rehabilitation of all mains around Lake Pinehurst.
The purpose of this project is to replace failing sewers using the most non-disruptive “Trenchless Technology” whenever feasible. The project will increase system performance and reduce maintenance calls and service disruptions due to line blockages, collapses, and sewer overflows.
Work To Be Performed
Construction is scheduled to begin August 8th 2011 with non-disruptive preliminary investigation. Major construction will begin August 29th, 2011. A contract time of 15 months has been established.

How the Communities Will Be Affected/What Residents Can Expect
The Contractor is required to notify residents of upcoming work in their area 14 days in advance. Additionally, the Contractor will notify the residents again 24 hours just prior to the actual work. This notification will occurr primarily by door hangers that will be left on the front doors of each residence.
This project will require several subcontractors, each specializing in a particular field of sewer rehabilitation. Therefore, residents will see trucks and equipment bearing the logos of Atlantic Coast Contractors, KRG Utilities, SAK Construction, Allis Construction and Hydrostructures, P.A.
There are Three Key Construction Phases:
This will require block closures for throughway traffic. This will be the most disruptive phase of construction but will be limited to the immediate area being replaced, and it will only take about 1 week to complete construction in front of your house. Your sewer service will only be disrupted for a few hours while crews are working on lines serving your house. During this time, you will be asked to limit water usage and avoid using your washing machine and dishwasher.
Normal Working Hours
Normal working hours are between 7:00 a .m. and 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. No major construction will occur after 5:00 p.m. The Contractor is required to give property owners seven (7) day’s notice before any change in normal working hours.
