Sanitary Sewer Improvements

sanitary sewer improvementsSanitary sewer improvements are part of the FEMA project to relocate the wastewate treatment plant as a result of the March 2019 flood. The project consists of the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant at the Fourmile Industrial Park, new pumping stations, and conveyance system. The sanitary sewer improvements will include removal and replacement of the existing surfacing on Smith Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, 2nd Avenue, and Richey Street. This will allow installation of sanitary sewer force mains, storm sewer installations, and water main relocations. Reconstruction will include new sidewalks and ADA accessible ramps.

The project is planned to be constructed in phases to minimize the disruption to residences and public access to Rhylander Park.
