To keep up with Peachtree City’s annual street paving program, the Peachtree City Water and Sewer Authority has entered a contract to make sure the manholes don’t remain paved over.

The contract will cost WASA $57,100 but will insure the authority has access to the manholes, which will be raised to be flush with the newly pave roadbed, said WASA General Manager Larry Turner.

The authority will locate the manholes ahead of time so once the paving is complete the contractor can cut through the pavement to access the hole, raise it and then fill in around the manhole, Turner said.

The manholes are important to provide access to the sewer system for maintenance purposes, Turner said.

WASA is a separate entity from city government and gets its funds from sewer fees charged to property owners.
