Mayor Thomas Gillen has issued the following for residents of the city of Oswego:

     The city of Oswego is required to separate the "Combined Sewer System" in the easterly portions of the Fifth and Seventh Wards as mandated in a Consent Decree with the Federal Environmental Protection Agency and New York Department of Environmental Conservation.

     The city of Oswego has entered into a construction contract with Joseph J. Lane Construction Inc., Syracuse, New York, for installation of new stormwater sewers in all of the streets outlined within the accompanying map. The $4,824,888 project cost is financed with the assistance of the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation. Construction is scheduled to begin in the next few days and will be completed by July 2014. The project involves excavation of trenches in the city streets, installation of approximately 16,000 lineal feet of new sewer pipes, replacement of old lead water services within the streets, backfilling of trenches, and restoration of pavements. The contractor is required to maintain dust control, as well as daily access to property owners' driveways.
     The project will be monitored daily by an on-the-job inspector, as well as a representative from the City Engineer's Office. Please call the City Engineer's Office at 315-342-8153 with any questions concerning the project or experience any adverse condition during construction.
     The city realizes that the work may cause a certain amount of temporary inconvenience while the project is in progress. Public patience will be appreciated during construction.
