The city of St. Joseph has worked out agreements to acquire property impacted by the construction of the East side Wastewater Improvement Project.
The project is intended to rehab the Faraon Street pump station and replace the Easton Road pump station.
The improvements will ensure dependable waste water services for the East side of the city, and fix the maintenance issues the sewer system has now.
"The existing pump station at Easton Road is just at the wrong location. It can't even serve all the industrial parks, it's just in the wrong spot. The dryers are old and part of the dryers are worn. The wet well is undersized for the future growth that we see," said Andy Clements.
The project is planned to be completed by the end of 2014.
