Burdick Excavating Co. of Carson City is currently under contract performing a water quality improvement project for the Washoe County Community Services Department in Incline Village.

The project includes building sedimentation ponds on U.S. Forest Service property, placing fabric and rock-in channels to clarify drainage run-off, installing infiltration galleries and drain inlets that will be buried under rock-lined ditches, and paving stones to fortify the slopes.

Work is under way on Juanita Drive and Rubicon Peak, before moving to sections of Village Drive south of Incline Way; Southwood Boulevard just east and west of Village Drive; and short stretches on Tanager, Oriole and Enterprise.

Residents can be advised where the road closure and traffic controls will be in place every day on the company’s Facebook page at

According to Burdick, some work may necessitate gas, water and sewer relocations, which will be determined as potholing takes place and conflicts are exposed. Any outages will be posted on the Facebook page.

Should residents want to talk to someone at Washoe County, the project supervisor is Joaquin Tabbada, and he can be reached at 775-328-5292.

Weather permitting; the project should be completed no later than mid-July.
