  • The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is undertaking the Sewer Repair, Replacement and Rehabilitation (SR3) program which is an effort to improve the sewer system and protect the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The repair activities taking place in the Hayes Forest Preserve will prevent sanitary sewage overflows, improve WSSC service and restore stream habitat. The work is scheduled to start on Sept 1, 2015 and will last until April 1, 2016. During that time portions of the Overlook trail and Heritage trail will be inaccessible and heavy machinery will be brought in by WSSC contractors to complete the work. For more information on the SR3 Program go here.
