Rheems Warehouse Construction Update – Foundation & Sitework Blasting

Residents of Rheems are advised that some blasting will be required for the sitework and foundations of the new warehouse project that has recently begun on the former Sudano’s Produce property located at 156 West Harrisburg Ave and south of the Township's ball fields.

The first blast is scheduled for Thursday, August 24th during the noon hour. Residents should anticipate up to 3 blasts per week for the next month. Blasts will generally occur between the hours of noon and 2:00 pm. These blasts will be smaller than those typically used by the quarry as the amount of material to be moved is less.

This is an active construction site with lots of heavy equipment moving about and other hazards. As such, it is not a safe place for members of the general public. Residents are reminded that this is private property and should not be entered uninvited.

The contractor will have centuries posted outside the safety perimeter to ensure that no one wonders into any blast zones.
