Project Summary

This project was funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 through the State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan program administered by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES). Economic stimulus money provided 50 percent of the eligible project costs through forgiveness of the loan principal. This was a difficult and complex project in a heavily developed commercial area with high traffic volume and numerous underground utilities. Over 80 businesses and numerous residents were directly impacted by construction of this project and many more businesses were indirectly impacted.

The project included replacement of approximately 2,400 linear feet of 18-inch, 900 linear feet of 15-inch, and 2,350 linear feet of 12-inch diameter sewers in the Pinardville area of Goffstown. This was a critically needed project to replace existing old clay pipe sewers that had many structural deficiencies and could no longer provide the necessary hydraulic flow capacity to meet current or future needs. There was a moratorium in place on new sewer connections in this area due to the lack of available hydraulic capacity.

Hoyle, Tanner assisted the Town in securing the federal stimulus ARRA funding and provided engineering assistance to the Department of Public Works’ engineering section during the design phase as well as securing the necessary permits and approvals. Hoyle, Tanner provided all of the construction phase engineering services including construction administration and resident engineering. Our services included collecting and monitoring weekly certified payrolls, monitoring Davis-Bacon wage rates, preparing and submitting the weekly and monthly ARRA job reports and all of the other required paperwork. Our neighborhood outreach to the local businesses included weekly email “e-blasts” to the businesses, postings to the Town’s website, and periodic informational meetings for affected businesses and residents at the local restaurants in the project area.
