(from an email originally sent to Mike Bauer, President of the CCNA)
It’s been awhile since I’ve talked with you about the City of Los Angeles Lower North Outfall Sewer (LNOS) Phase II Rehabilitation Project. We want you to know about some work that is starting at Overland and Kelmore. The intent was not to work at this location until a couple of months from now, however the contractor ran into a situation where he needs to access the maintenance hole near this intersection sooner rather than later.
The contractor is currently cleaning the sewer using hydroblasters. The work is being done from access points along the sewer alignment. The work to take place at Overland/Kelmore is a half-way point between Playa Court and the West Los Angeles College. The hydroblasters are not able to “blast” the debris in the sewer from Playa Court to the college and an interim point is needed to make sure the debris is moved adequately to the college where it can be removed and disposed of properly.
We have met with the City of Culver City and hand-delivered notification to the community around the intersection (see notice below). The contractor only found out that the debris was not being moved adequately last Saturday. We hope that future notices to the community will be in a more timely manner. Hopefully, everything you need to know is in the notice below. However, please feel free to call me at my office tomorrow at (310) 822-2010 if you have any questions.
Thanks, Vikki Zale
