Chickahominy Haven - Canal Street (complete) Stormwater Replacement/Improvements

Dec. 9, 2013

Scope of Work

This project consists of the replacement of a failed stormwater drainage pipe from Canal Street to a man-made canal that is tributary to the Chickahominy River.  The project will replace an existing failed 18-inch metal pipe with a polypropylene pipe.  The existing pipe is not located within a drainage easement so a public drainage easement is required to be obtained from both property owners involved.  The project will help alleviate a flooding problem that impacts several properties and septic drainfields in this portion of Chickahominy Haven.


Date of Completion - June 21, 2013
Note: Construction activities were completed on time.


Estimated Budget: $5,000
AES Consulting Engineers - $7,313.80
Contract amount and percent completed - $7,313.80 – 100 percent
Toano Contractors - $25,479
Total change orders - 1
