Sewer System Rehabilitation UPDATE - August 14, 2019

Tri-State Utilities is in the Rady basin today finishing the sewer main relining project in the red highlighted area on the map below.

A contractor for the Town of Warrenton (BLD) will be sealing the sewer lateral connections on all of the sewer mains that were recently relined in the Rady Basin. This will further reduce inflow and infiltration where the house lateral connects with the Town's sewer mains. (See graphic below).
Please keep all commode lids closed. The cleaning process prior to the lateral sealing sometimes
causes water to splash from commodes.
For questions, concerns or complaints, contact Larry K. Oliver with the Public Utilities Department at
540-347-1858 or email loliver@warrentonva.gov.
