Street-opening permits deadline is approaching
The deadline for obtaining Watertown city street-opening permits is Nov. 16.
Contractors who do not make the deadline will have to wait until the spring thaw of 2019 to open streets for sewer laterals and utility work. This generally is in and around March 15, according to City Engineer Jaynellen J. Holloway, P.E.
“Arrangements should be made with the Watertown Water Department for these laterals in the street right-of-way,” Holloway said.
