Trenton Utility Committee reviews projects with estimated costs of $1,000,000

Trenton Utility Committee

Information was shared this week with the Utility Committee on water and sewer line projects that are in the design process. There are four street locations in Trenton with a total cost collectively more than $1,000,000. Each is projected to be done before street and state highway work is done to avoid tearing up a new road surface.

Information was provided by City Administrator/Utility Director Ron Urton.

A portion of Normal Street needs sewer line rehab replacement before the street overlay project is done in the summer of next year. The estimated construction cost for the sewer line work is $636,000.

A proposed water project would eliminate a line crossing 9th Street. The estimated construction cost is $160,000. Replacement of a water line is proposed along 9th Street at a preliminary estimated construction cost of $159,000. Both of these projects are to finished before Highway 6 is paved through town in 2020.

Proposed work on 8th Street includes removal of a sanitary sewer manhole with a water main running through it, eliminating several hundred feet of old sanitary sewer main to reduce infiltration and the first phase of a project to replace a two-inch main with an eight-inch main on 8th Street between Kitty and Kumler. The estimated construction cost is $242,000.

Each of the project locations also involves additional expenses for preliminary engineering and design work.
