From staff reports

The weather has turned good to match the news in this week’s Mossy Oaks Project update.

According to Mossy Oaks Multijurisdictional Drainage Task Force Chair Neal Pugliese, Col. USMC, Ret., the finish line is near and the project remains on time and under budget.

Basin 1 

As stated last week, the drainage project in Basin I is substantially complete and the entire system is working precisely as designed. This week, minor but supporting drainage was improved on Battery Creek Road and Coates Lane.

Further, a sewage system was repaired along Battery Creek Road.

Next week, finishing work will be done in the vicinity of the Duck Pond, and in the near future, finishing work will be completed in the ditch between North Royal Oaks and Battery Creek Road.

Lastly, preparations will be made for final road-paving in selected areas.

Basin 2 

Work in Basin II is nearly complete. This week the temporary coffer dam was removed. In the following weeks, the newly installed tidal flap gates will be calibrated and the Spanish Moss Trail will be restored for the full enjoyment of our residents and visitors.


Another perfect week of safety.

Dominion Energy is substantially complete with pruning operations, but crews will be in the area for the next few weeks completing punch list items and detail work. Dominion will have heavy machinery and trucks in the area.
