Afton Splashpad

The splash pad in Afton is becoming a reality. All the elements are up & the concrete is poured and sod is put down. Last but not least comes painting the design and color on the concrete. They have to wait 28 days for the concrete to cure before painting it. Plans are the opening to be Memorial weekend.

Hydro-Klean  Starting Sewer Lining Process in Afton

There will soon be activity on West Filmore and South Browning  as Hydro-Klean starts televising and cleaning sewer pipe to prepare for the lining. This process is cost effective and prevents the need for digging up pipe and replacing it. This is the same process that was done on East Filmore.

They televise, clean and run an epoxy pipe lining system that  will line the sewer pipe with a seamless new pipe inside the old  pipe. This new pipe  inside a pipe offers a lot of benefits over the old pipe. Roots cannot penetrate the new lining on the sewer pipe and with no seams the flow rate will improve over the old cast iron,  pvc, or clay sewer pipe. There are other benefits such as calcification can not take place on a lined sewer pipe.
