Hamilton County Water And Wastewater Treatment Authority To Host Public Meetings

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

The Hamilton County Water & Wastewater Treatment Authority will host two public meetings to share information regarding its applications for funding from the State of Tennessee’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund. 

The first meeting will be held on Monday, Sept. 18, from 6–7:30 p.m. in the East Ridge City Council Chambers, located at 1517 Tombras Avenue.  The WWTA plans to apply for $7,310,000.00 to perform sanitary sewer investigation, design and rehabilitation services for the sanitary sewer basins located in the City of East Ridge.  Referred to as the “East Ridge Sanitary Sewer Basin Project”, the project consists of performing trenchless rehabilitation of approximately 22,000 feet of sewers and rehabilitating 1,800 vertical feet of manholes located throughout the eastern portion of the City of East Ridge in “East Ridge Basin 10”. 

In addition, the WWTA will perform additional manhole inspections, smoke testing and closed circuit television inspection on additional sewers located throughout the sanitary sewer sub basins within the city. 

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, the WWTA will hold a public meeting at the Red Bank Community Center located at 3353 Tom Weathers Drive from 6–7:30 p.m.  The WWTA plans to apply for $1,560,000 for planning services to provide sanitary sewer investigations (manhole inspections, smoke testing, and closed-circuit television inspection) on sanitary sewers located in East Ridge, Lookout Mountain, Red Bank, Signal Mountain and unincorporated areas in Hamilton County.  The project is called the “Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Services for Red Bank, Signal Mountain East Ridge, Lookout Mountain and Hamilton County Project”.

Planning work consists of conducting manhole inspections on 973 manholes located within these areas as well as smoke testing and closed-circuit television investigation of approximately 184, 000 feet of sanitary sewers.  Results of the investigations will be utilized for planning future additional rehabilitation projects.  The goal of all of the projects is to identify sources of extraneous water entering the sanitary sewer collection system and overwhelming the sewers during wet weather events. 

Both public meetings are being held to describe the investigation and rehabilitation  work to be performed and how the loan will impact monthly wastewater fees.

WWTA Executive Director Mark Harrison said, “The loans we are applying for to do this work come from the State of Tennessee’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund, which means the focus of these meetings must pertain to the projects we’ve just described.  But, there’s a great deal of work to be done in our service areas, so there are probably lots of folks with questions on other projects. Please don't wait to ask those questions. Give Rodney Ashby a call at 423.209.7842”.
