The City of Jeffersonville has received a report from Webster Environmental Associates, Inc. with recommendations on the elimination of the odors currently being generated at the new Tenth Street Pump Station. The cost of the additional facilities will be between $900,000 and $1,100,000.
In addition, the report also included controls to reduce if not eliminate the odors at the Downtown Wastewater Treatment Plant Headworks at a cost of $400,000.
The Sewer Board has authorized Webster Environmental Associates to present an agreement to The Sewer Board, at the next Sewer Board meeting which will be held on Thursday, December 20, at 3:00 p.m. in the Mayor’s Conference Room, City Hall, 500 Quartermaster Depot.
The agreement will authorize Webster Environmental Associates to design the odor control facilities at both the 10th Street Pump Station and at the Downtown Waste Water Treatment Plant Headworks.
Len Ashack, City of Jeffersonville Waste Water Director said, “When these projects are complete, the odor should be virtually eliminated at both plants”.
