Dewatering phase of Georgetown drainage project begins

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - Sealing and grouting operations at the well at the corner of Front and Dozier are scheduled to begin the week of Sept 1.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and the City of Georgetown reports that dewatering will begin next week and is currently scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

As with any construction operation, delays due to weather or other factors could impact this schedule. If changes to this schedule occur, additional updates will be provided prior to beginning the dewatering operations.

An extensive monitoring plan will be implemented during the dewatering. The monitoring plan includes real time analysis of water levels and pressure from monitoring wells installed throughout the project area. Stop points have been identified so that the dewatering can be halted immediately if necessary.
