FPU’s water, sewer improvements move forward

Posted on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 5:28 am

Plans for water and sewer rehab work across the city continue with Fayetteville Public Utilities eyeing more projects in the coming months.

FPU’s board of directors last month passed resolutions for financing a total of $4 million in sewer improvements, with $100,000 principal forgiveness. Work planned across the city includes replacement of several thousand feet of line, rehab or replacement of some 100 man holes and replacement of approximately 200 sewer service connections, according to Britt Dye, FPU’s CEO and general manager.

The resolutions will go to the Fayetteville Board of Mayor and Aldermen for its approval next week.

Both FPU and the city board had approved FPU’s application for the moneys in meetings late last year.
