Rockport — During the week of April 14, there will be construction equipment creating traffic disruptions and delays at Mid-Coast Solid Waste, according to Manager Jim Guerra.

"Work will be occurring primarily in the recycling area which we will have to relocate but it will hopefully be available throughout the process," he said. "The best possible option would be to stay away for a week if at all possible."

The work being done at the facility is drilling and coring.

"This initial activity is exploratory in nature, to determine the design and cost of installing a grout system which will eliminate the flow of water from the north quarry through the 'gut' into the south quarry," Guerra said.

The water from the south quarry must be treated at the water treatment plant, leading to significant costs, he said.

"We are hopeful that this system could lower our cost by 20 percent initially and by a significantly greater percentage once the landfill is closed," Guerra said.

During construction, the facility will be open during normal business hours: Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, the facility can be reached by calling 236-7958.
