Town performing sewer upgrades

Staff reports

PENDLETON — The Fall Creek Regional Waste District is making improvements to portions of its sanitary sewer system within Pendleton to improve system performance, extend its service life and reduce the amount of extraneous water that enters the pipes.

The project includes replacing and lining mainline sewers and replacing many service lines on private property.

The district is preparing to start construction of Phase II of the project, which will last through summer 2018.

Phase II includes most of the areas south of and surrounding downtown Pendleton. A map showing the locations affected by the project can be found at www.fcrwd.com.

In addition to work on the sewer mains, many of the properties in the project areas with older sewer laterals will also have these pipes replaced all the way to the building. There is a temporary easement form that must be signed by the property owner for the district to complete the work.

Residents who have received one of these forms and not signed it should do so and return it as soon as possible so that their property can be included in this work.
