NOTICE: Water System Construction at SVC – Use Caution

Important Notice to the Public

Water System Improvements at Southern Vermont College (May 2015 – Oct 2015)

The Town of Bennington is currently in the process of making major improvements to the Town’s Water System.  Much of this work is taking place on or near the Southern Vermont College Campus.  Our construction company has asked that we notify and ask the public to please refrain from using the Southern Vermont College’s Upper Campus to access hiking trails over the next few months.  There will be Heavy Equipment movement and Ledge Blasting taking place above the upper campus for a new water tank.  Local emergency services have been notified and will continue to be kept informed when blasting is to occur.

The Town’s contractor has made multiple attempts to fence off the areas of concern, only to have the fencing removed during evening hours.  Please be respectful of work zone safety fencing and obey warning signs identifying all danger zones.  This is being done for your safety and protection.  If you have concerns or questions about this project please call the Bennington Town Offices at 442-1037 and ask to speak with Terry.
