Work on the first phase of a major downtown sewer improvement project was completed on August 16, 2007. The $3.5 million project was the first phase of an effort to install more than 3 miles of pipeline that will carry treated wastewater from the Northside WasteWater Treatment Plant (see map).
The pipeline installation, funded jointly by the city and county, is needed to accommodate the expansion of the Northside plant currently underway. The expansion will double the amount of wastewater the plant can treat each day.
