Information on Phase 7
Phase 7 (Contracts 22, 23, 24 and 25)     
as of  September 18, 2007
All 4 contracts in Phase 7 have been turned over to the Town. If you live in this area you should have received a letter telling you that you can now connect to the system.

This list breaks out Phase 7 into the four contracts that will be used for construction. The contract numbers are 22, 23, 24 and 25. (Due to some surveying delays, Contracts 23 and 24 have been reversed in the schedule.) This takes the large area of Phase 7 and makes four smaller, more manageable areas.
