Groundbreaking Ceremony for Historic Rogers Road Sewer System
A groundbreaking ceremony for a new sanitary sewer system to serve the Historic Rogers Road area and some additional properties will take place at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, at the RENA Community Center, 101 Edgar St., Chapel Hill.
A collaborative effort among Orange County and the towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro has worked to extend sewer service and establish a community center in the Historic Rogers Road–Eubanks Road Community. Progress toward these goals was made in November 2014 when the new Rogers Road Community Center opened. Today, the community will celebrate the construction of the sewer system, which will begin in July and may last up to 10 or 12 months.
The Rogers-Eubanks Neighborhood Association, in collaboration with Orange County, the Towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, and OWASA will host the ceremony. Join us for light refreshments immediately following the event.
If you have any questions or comments before the groundbreaking ceremony, please feel free to contact Vishnu Gangadharan, OWASA, at (919) 537-4248 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
