East Ridge Receives Funding For Sewer Project

Tennessee State Revolving Fund Provides $7.3 Million For Project

Monday, November 20, 2017

The city of East Ridge is about to see a lot more of the Hamilton County WWTA, thanks to funding by the State of Tennessee’s Revolving Fund.  The WWTA has worked hand-in-hand with the city of East Ridge over the last 18 to 24 months to define sewer infrastructure needs that will assist with rehabilitation of sewer lines. 

The “East Ridge Sanitary Sewer Basin 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 the Basin 10 area.   

Kenny Custer represents East Ridge on the board of the Hamilton County WWTA.  He said, “We appreciate the dedication of the WWTA along with their contractor SM&E, as they worked hard to determine the needs of our sewer system.  This is a critical project and we are excited for the work begin.” 

WWTA Executive Director Mark Harrison said, “As Hamilton County prepares for unprecedented growth in the coming years, we are very appreciative for the support given to us by the Commission and especially by County Mayor Coppinger for the proposed treatment.  Equally important to the growth of our community is the rehabilitation of our aging infrastructure throughout our service areas. The funding received from the state’s Revolving Fund will be put to good use in East Ridge. We appreciate the support of Rep. Marc Gravitt and Senator Todd Gardenhire for this project.” 

Information regarding project updates will be posted on the WWTA’s Facebook page:  Hamilton County WWTA.
