B8 Sewer Pipe

09-21-2023 Trevor2ndOpinionEmail
There is a high level of concern about digging up an beautiful area of our property. We are making every effort to do no harm to the Landscape while at the same time finding a solution  to a half blocked pipe.
As members of the Board our standards to uphold are:

  1. Maintain the integrity of  our property: to uphold home values for good health and enjoyment of the property, which include buildings, infrastructure and landscape amenities.
  2. Fiduciary Responsibility: Be conservative and thoughtful, looking for the best solutions both functionally and visually, in spending money to uphold property value.
    1. RED AREA BELOW: This project is based on videos and video #38 shows a damaged area. View videos taken of McGill storm and sewer system here:
    2. BLACK AREA BELOW: Video 33 only shows grease deposits (called out as “concrete” on engineering drawing, 2nd drawing row below).
    3.  The most economical and non-damaging to amenity areas would be to:
      1. RED: dig up the section that actually is damaged at the pool
      2. BLUE: then video the remaining to the lost manhole to monitor for pipe damage
      3. BLACK: avoid tearing up amenities and infrastructure unnecessarily.


ABOVE is economic and respectful to the property and owners by utilizing the information in video #33. The area of the black outline above  shows grease deposits, but no damage to that pipe length.
MISINFORMATION: In the present plans (below) this pipe is called out as having  “chucks of concrete” and is slated to be dug up and replaced, causing unnecessary and expensive entry landscape amenity damage.
Lets save the amenity space, save money by fixing only what is broke saving the unnecessary digging up of valuable trees, beautiful amenity space and infrastructure for an unnecessary pipe replacement. HERE is a .pdf illustrating this..
