Sewer construction can disrupt vehicle and pedestrian traffic, and construction zones can be hazardous. Environmental Services is committed to safety at its construction sites. Be safe this spring and summer by keeping these guidelines in mind.

  • Pay attention to flaggers directing traffic through construction areas.

  • Slow down when you drive through construction sites.

  • Respect construction barricades.

  • Don’t enter a construction area without authorization.

  • Never move traffic cones or other traffic control devices.

  • Never let children play in or near a construction zone.
