Ammonia alarm sirens to be tested
On Thursday, March 25, at 10:00 a.m. the Kingston Fossil Plant ammonia alarm sirens will be tested.  These sirens will be tested every week on Wednesday morning.  Residents living along Swan Pond Road are being notified.  They are also being advised that in addition to the weekly ammonia alarm siren testing, there may be other siren testing conducted intermittently in the future.  If there is a real emergency that would affect the public, 911 will be notified, and in turn will notify the Emergency Management Agency (EMA).   EMA will determine if the public should be notified and will work with 911 to do that.

Utility enhancement work
The work under the I-40 Bridge should be complete by the end of the day today.  Within the next few days the heavy equipment will be moved to the intersection of Swan Pond Road and Hassler Mill Road where work is continuing.

Swan Pond Circle by-pass work
The work to build a by-pass road just off the current Swan Pond Circle Road will begin today.    The by-pass road is being constructed first, followed by construction of the bridge.  The bridge construction is expected to take about 6-8 weeks.  When completed, the by-pass road will be removed and Swan Pond Circle Road will be reopened.  While conducting this work one lane of a small section of Swan Pond Circle Road will be closed during working hours for a few days.  Road signs and road crews will be on hand to direct traffic.
