Thursday, October 11, 2018

The Hamilton County Water and Wastewater Treatment Authority (WWTA) will be conducting a public meeting on Oct. 29, at 6 p.m. at the Lookout Mountain Town Hall Commission Room, 710 Scenic Highway, Lookout Mountain, Tn. to provide information about WWTA’s application for a Clean Water State Revolving Fund Loan in the amount of $5,474,000 to perform sanitary sewer investigation, design and rehabilitation services for sanitary sewer basins in the Town of Lookout Mountain. 

There are two loans for this project: one for $3,000,000 which includes $300,000 principal forgiveness that will not have to be repaid and another for $2,474,000 with no principal forgiveness.

The project is called the “Lookout Mountain Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project WWTA 17-316”.

The rehabilitation work consists of performing trenchless rehabilitation of approximately 24,000 feet of sewers and rehabilitating 2,100 vertical feet of manholes located throughout portions of Lookout Mountain.

Officials said the intent of the public meeting is to describe the investigation and rehabilitation work being performed and how the loan will impact monthly wastewater fees.
