Wastewater System Improvement Project

Our Mission

To manage the $186 million City of Fayetteville Wastewater System Improvement Project, ensuring the project meets the needs of the Citizens of Fayetteville, Farmington, Greenland, Elkins, and the southern portion of Johnson in the most cost effective fashion, on a reasonable schedule, while maintaining the highest quality of construction that will provide for the City’s long term wastewater collection and treatment needs.

Our Purpose

This division provides both field inspection and administrative overwatch on five major engineering and over 20 separate construction contracts performed City-wide.  The WSIP addresses capacity shortfalls in the principal wastewater collection and treatment systems.  Four major elements of the project include: construction of the new West Side Wastewater Treatment Plant; upgrading of the existing Noland (east side) Wastewater Treatment Plant, west side transmission line construction with pump stations; and east side transmission line construction with pump station upgrades. 

This project will increase the wastewater treatment capacity from 12.6 to 21.2 million gallons per day, and will eliminate wet weather sanitary sewer overflows in storms that statistically occur in Fayetteville once every five years.

The WSIP project involves construction and/or renovation of over 31 miles of pipeline, nine wastewater pumping stations, and two wastewater treatment plants. The current work plan for this complex capital improvement project anticipates completion of all work in 2009. The new WWTP released its first effluent on June 1, 2008.
