A division of Dawes, Modena Earthworks provides a variety of excavation and cemetery services in the Hudson Valley.

Back in 1952 Henry F. Dawes (aka "Poppy Chicken") ventured into Hudson Valley Sanitation. HVS was one of the very few companies with a "vacuum truck", located on East Road on the border of Plattekill and Marlboro in the little "town" of "Dawesville". After many changes in the business structure and more family members getting involved, Henry changed the company name to "B&G Dawes Inc." (Bambi & Gregory) in the 70s.

In 1982, Chris Dawes (aka "Dawzie") became involved in the business. In 1986, Chris' father Henry retired and Chris became the new owner with a new name of Dawes Septic Service. In 1995, Chris started Modena Earthworks and Supply to handle repair work and supply delivery.

Today, Dawes Septic and Repair and Modena Earthworks are proudly run by Carl (Chris' son) and his wife Becky. Along with their team, the Dawes Family provides specialty services in all phases of wastewater disposal system design, installation, maintenance and repair. Additionally, excavation services are offered with the expertise to include ponds, drainage, site work for new home build, and cemetery services.

Community support is dear to their hearts. Rotarians since 1991, Dawes is committed to providing for their community as a way to give back for all the support that has been shown to them over the many years.
