Wastewater Line Rehabilitation Project Begins in Reserve

Wastewater Line Rehabilitation Project Begins in Reserve

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Over the next four months, the Utilities Department, Spinks Construction, Inc. and Suncoast Infrastructure, Inc. will complete work on the wastewater line rehabilitation project in Reserve. The project is the second phase of inflow/infiltration repair work and will consist of point to point repairs and lining cracked wastewater lines in older areas of Reserve. “This is one of several ongoing efforts to improve our wastewater treatment system by decreasing the amount of storm water entering our distribution system,” said Parish President Natalie Robottom.

The lining work will begin between West 3rd and West 9th Streets in Reserve; however, areas between East 28th and West 10th from Airline Hwy to River Road will see work performed in the coming weeks.

As a precaution, flagmen will be on site to manage traffic during construction. Periodic lane closures may occur; however, residents will be notified in advance when possible. Should residents have questions or concerns during this project, please contact the Utilities Department at 985-651-6800.
