LITTLE ROCK WASTEWATER’S ‘UNSEWERED AREAS’ PROJECT UPDATE

(Little Rock, AR) – In this 21st century, it is hard to imagine an area within a city’s limits without the modern convenience of sewer services. At the request of the Little Rock Board of Directors, Little Rock Wastewater made a commitment to provide sewer access to residents living in designated “unsewered areas” within the city limits.

Since the project began in 2005, Little Rock Wastewater has spent $7,000,000 towards honoring this request. This is a colossal task, monumental in scope. Other cities in Arkansas and around the U.S are working to accomplish this very same task, but because of the difficulty and longevity of this project, many of them are running into delays and back ups.

Little Rock Wastewater’s contractors have been working hard and are on schedule to meet the projected completion date of October 2008. Major locations that now have sewer access that previously did not include Alexander Rd, Fourche Dam Pike, Hienke Rd, and neighborhoods in the West Cantrell Area. Once an area is completed, residents in that area will have a 2 year period where they can tap in and access our sewer service for a one time $185 fee plus plumbing costs.

After the initial 2 year window has passed, access fees increase tremendously. Residents need to act fast and tap in to the modern convenience of the city’s sewer service now while it is still affordable.
