The Hamilton County Water and Wastewater Treatment Authority (WWTA) will be conducting a PUBLIC MEETING on October 29, 2018 at 6:00 PM, local time, at the Lookout Mountain Town Hall Commission Room, 710 Scenic Hwy, Lookout Mountain, TN 37350 to provide information about WWTA’s application for a Clean Water State Revolving Fund Loan in the amount of $5,474,000.00 to perform sanitary sewer investigation, design and rehabilitation services for sanitary sewer basins located in the Town of Lookout Mountain.
There are two loans for this project, CW7 2019-424 for $3,000,000 which includes $300,000 principal forgiveness that will not have to be repaid and SRF 2019-425 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.
The intent of this public meeting is to describe the investigation and rehabilitation work being performed and how the loan will impact monthly wastewater fees.
Hamilton County Water & Wastewater Treatment Authority (WWTA) will be seeking Statements of Qualifications (SOQ’s) from plumbers to participate in our Private Sewer Lateral Program (PSLP).
Advertisement will be released in the Times Free Press on October 25, 2018.
This is an important program not only for our customers but also for the WWTA. The work done by our Master Plumbers is critical to our mission.
We hope you will submit your qualifications for consideration. Any questions contact us at (423) 209-7842.
Encourages Customers to Reach Out Directly to WWTA in Times of Need
The Hamilton County WWTA has some tips for customers experiencing sewer issues, beginning with the most important: Call us first. The WWTA notes that sometimes customers will reach out to their particular city or municipality regarding sewer issues instead of reaching out for immediate assistance by the WWTA.
WWTA Executive Director Mark Harrison said, “Sewer issues are never fun; however, there’s a way to have those issues addressed in a more efficient and effective manner and that’s by calling us first. If it’s our responsibility, we’ll get the repairs scheduled as quickly as possible, usually within a day of receiving the call. If it’s an issue for another entity, our customer service team will be able to provide the proper office to call along with the number. We’re happy to help those experiencing problems with their sewer service.”
