Hamilton County WWTA to begin work in East Ridge




The City of East Ridge is about to see a lot more of the Hamilton County Water & Wastewater Treatment Authority thanks to funding by the state’s Revolving Fund. The WWTA has worked together with the City of East Ridge over the last 18 to 24 months to define sewer infrastructure needs that will assist with critical 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 says, “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’re excited for the work begin.”

WWTA Executive Director Mark Harrison: “As Hamilton County prepares for unprecedented growth in the coming years, we appreciate the support the commission and especially Mayor (Jim) Coppinger have given us 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.”
