What's New
  • The Kinloch Interceptor Sewer Rehabilitation Project is currently in progress. The project began in January 2017 and is expected to be complete by mid-summer. This project is part of the first phase of the Long Term Control Plan. This project includes rehabilitation of sewers along 7th Street Extension., Haser Drive, and Summit Street that have been identified as structurally deficient and sources of excessive inflow and infiltration. Rehabilitating these sewers is the first step at eliminating Sanitary System Overflows (SSOs) in the Kinloch drainage area.
  • The Office and Garage Building Project is nearly complete. This project involved the construction of a new administrative office building and a garage/laboratory/locker room building. These facilities were relocated to accommodate the upcoming Phase II wastewater treatment plant upgrade project.
