Nisky to collect $15k for botched pipes

Flat sewer pipes will need periodic cleaning, money won’t cover replacement

— The original designs submitted to the town met minimum standards, but were very close to them, according to Pollock. The residential subdivision is known as Providence Point.

Pollock said he reviewed plans by the final developer and noticed the pipes were flatter than accepted standards. He said the developer would need to obtain certification from the engineer that reviewed the plan to sign off on it.

“I figured with that, nobody would have certified to it,” Pollock said. “Somehow they twisted the original developer’s arm … and he sent in a certification.”

Ivan Zdrahal Associates was the company that made the certification, according to Pollock.

Town Supervisor Joe Landry said the remaining companies don’t have any assets, so it would be difficult to be successful in a lawsuit. Landry said the money is probably being awarded through an insurance company.

“It is hard to force judgments against companies without assets,” Landry said.
