EDMOND — Cleaning will begin next week for sanitary sewer easements in southeast Edmond, according to City Manager Larry Stevens’ office.

Clearing sanitary sewer easements will allow the inspection and access to sewer lines. Maintenance crews will be better able to identify and repair potential problems to avoid environmental damage, said Casey Moore, marketing and public relations manager.

Work will begin on the west end of the easement just south of the First Baptist Church, 33rd Street and Bryant Avenue.

City contractor Davey Tree Surgery Company will clear the Cheyenne Ridge Interceptor, an area about nearly 2 miles in length, Moore said. The cost of the project is about $80,000.

“The scope of work within the 20-foot wide sewer easement includes brush cutting trees and shrubs that are 4 inches or less in diameter and trimming or removing some trees larger than 4 inches in diameter,” Moore said.

The crews will proceed to the east and turn back to the north. Neighborhoods bordering or crossed by the Cheyenne Ridge Interceptor work areas include: Persimmon Creek Place, Cheyenne Ridge, Spring Hill, Cinnamon Ridge, Tall Oaks Crossing, Arrowhead Estates and several individual properties.

“Due to the difficult terrain involved in some parts of this project, a specific timeline for completion has not been set,” Moore said. | 341-2121
