O’Hara council approved a $3.5 million sewerage project that is expected to begin next year.

A project to bring reliable sewerage to the Saxonburg Boulevard area of O’Hara is moving forward after at least five years of discussion.

Council this month approved $3.5 million in contracts for the East Little Pine Creek sanitary sewer and pump station project.

Construction is planned to provide sewerage to neighborhoods from the Shaler line to the Indiana Township line, and some homes along Berryhill and Calmwood roads. Many of the properties there still rely on septic systems.

Work is scheduled to begin after Jan. 7, Township Manager Julie Jakubec said.

The main contract was awarded to Chivers Construction Company, Inc., of Fairview, PA, for the base bid and some alternate work for about $3.2 million.

Electrical work went to Bronder Technical Services, of Prospect, PA, for $265,497.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
