COMMUNITY WATER SURVEY NOTICE:

Technicians from the U.S. Indian Health Services (IHS) sanitation department and Tuscarora Environment Program (TEP) office will be conducting a feasability study set to start in May, to better determine the cost of construction for water lines throughout the Tuscarora Nation territory. We will also explore alternatives that may be available insteaed of a community system.

 

DETAILS of the WATER SURVEY

  • We will survey 10 ft out from each side of the road for anything that could be disturbed by the potential community water system.
  • Small drill holes will be bored closer to the road to measure depth to bedrock for possible pipe installation. After the drilling, the holes will be filled in.
  • With homeowner permission, a point from the front of the house to the possible waterline will be measured and estimated for service connection lines.

 

For more information contact the TEP office: 716-264-6011.
