Description -- The proposed project is to raise and extend the existing levee in order to fully encircle the Town's wellhead with a continuous levee system that will protect the Town's drinking water system and have an average elevation of 256 feet with roughly 3 feet of freeboard.   Phase I is to design the levee and includes (a) preparation of levee improvement plan and (b) completion of bid documents.  Phase II will be to construct the levee once funding is available.  Phase I of the project will be completed by 7/01/2013.  Phase II will be construction phase.
