Some Sewage Repairs Completed

FLY CREEK PIPE WASHED OUT

The replacement of a sewage pipe under Fly Creek has been completed: It was washed away by flooding after the record-setting rains in April of last year..

The 8" pipe was replaced with a 10" one; it was mostly-funded by FEMA disaster-assistance grants.




TREATMENT PLANT PROJECTS UPDATE

The $13 million upgrade to the main sewage treatment plant north of city hall is on schedule to be completed later this year.

The improvements will increase capacity and extend the plant's life for another 15 years; new filtering will enhance effluent quality out into the bay as well.


Repairs to the  foundation of the 'UV' building and nearby channel also caused by the April 2014 rains are to begin shortly, mostly-funded by various federal grants too.

Ultra violet light is the final treatment-step  before discharging the treated effluent via pipeline out into the bay.
