EXPLANATION

PRESENT DAY

Existing water line connections in Cherry Hill are able to adequately provide water and sewer to the neighborhood however, should a leak occur or maintenance be required, even on a single home, the entire neighborhood’s water must be shut off.

AREAS OF CONCERN

1) The existing shutoff valves are on government property and requires the coordination and labor support of 673d CES.

2) As the water infrastructure ages, the need for additional work in the future may arise, requiring longer periods of downtime. With only a single shutoff for the entire neighborhood, residents could experience extended periods without water or sewer.

3) Most other neighborhoods on JBER contain whole building, street, or block shutoffs. While maintenance may inconvenience some homes during an emergency shut off, the impact is substantially lower.

SCOPE

To allow for easier maintenance and substantially decrease the need for neighborhood wide shutoffs, we will be installing 12 Valves. These will be accessible to our maintenance team and will allow us to provide ongoing maintenance and future upgrades to the water distribution system without the need to shut off water to the entire neighborhood.

Contractor: Frawner Corporation

AMH Point of Contact: AMHProjects@jlproperties.com

IN HOME

Entry to homes will not be required during this project however following each outage, 673d Bioenvironmental Engineering will need to perform testing on water from a selection of buildings. If impacted, you will receive a call from AMH informing you that a representative from Bioenvironmental will knock on your door following the outage, and provide a vial of which you will need to fill with tap water.

IN NEIGHBORHOOD

  • Hours: Monday-Saturday, 7 AM to 7 PM.
  • Various machinery and equipment will be present in the neighborhood.
  • All driveways and cul-de-sacs will be accessible however some areas will be temporarily reduced to a single lane.

WATER SHUTOFF SCHEDULE

This schedule is subject to change. You will receive notification (door hanger) 2 days prior to a shutoff that will impact your building. We will also email those whom have signed up for our email list, and selected “Cherry Hill” as their neighborhood each time the schedule is revised.
