WWTA to Reline Sewer Pipes on Signal Mountain

By Contributed Article

The Hamilton County Water and Wastewater Treatment Authority will spend $500,000 in the next month to reline strategic sewer pipes on the mountain. The work will be done in the Shoal Creek, Green Gorge and Signal Point area.

“This work will correct the problem of overflow into the Tennessee River,” said Mayor Paul Hendricks. “It will have a great impact on protecting the river. We’re extremely appreciate of this effort of the WWTA,” Mayor Hendricks stated.

The re-lining will seal the pipes whose cracks let in water during heavy rainfall. The water then overwhelms the sewage plant on Suck Creek, Mayor Hendricks explained. “This will be a great improvement in the system and protect the river,” the mayor said.

According to Town Manager Diana Campbell, the work on the pipes will begin in the next two weeks. WWTA expects to line 10,000 feet of pipe in the Green Gorge and Shoal Creek area and 2,000 feet in the Signal Point area. “We appreciate the patience of the citizens as we go through this effort,” the Mayor said.
