City of Ripley Wastewater Improvement Project
Wastewater Project Update
The City of Ripley Sanitary Board continues its efforts to modernize and improve the current wastewater (sewer) system and existing facilities to ensure compliance with environmental laws and provide the best service possible for residents of Ripley and Evans. The City of Ripley Wastewater project is now entering Phase I which includes the rehabilitation of existing manholes, the construction of several new lift stations, and replacement of problem areas within the existing collection systems. This project is in direct response to the West Virginia DEP’s consent orders for both Ripley and Evans. This part of the project consists of three separate contracts. Contract #3, is located in Ripley and will be done by PRO Contracting. It includes line replacements, new sewer force mains, and manhole rehabilitation with anticipated start date the week of Feb. 22, 2016. Contract #4, located in Evans, will be completed by Mendon Pipeline and features line replacements and manhole rehabilitation. Contract #5 will be completed by Pipe Plus and calls for the rehabilitation and construction of four new lift stations in Ripley and one new station in Evans and five other lift stations in Ripley are to be upgraded. In addition, Pipe Plus will install emergency generators at five existing stations in Evans. Construction for contract #4 and #5 is currently underway. The collection system modernization and upgrades in Ripley will allow for the elimination of two existing lift stations. Thrasher Engineering has been hired by the City of Ripley to supervise this project. Dan Ferrell of Thrasher is the project manager. Once ground has been broken for the project, we ask that you please be patient as construction takes place. We have filmed the entire course of the project and everything will be restored accordingly. Your input is welcomed. The City of Ripley Sanitary Board meets every third Thursday evening in the Council Chambers at City Hall beginning at 6:15 p.m.
