[ARCHIVED] Scheduled bypass at Burlington Wastewater Plant

The Burlington, Iowa Wastewater Treatment Facility, 101 South Street, has planned to stop all wastewater flow to the wastewater plant Tuesday morning, April 13, so city personnel can replace a portion of the plant’s thirty-six (36) inch influent line.  In order to perform the pipe replacement most of the city’s raw, untreated wastewater, for the duration of the repair, will be bypassed, untreated, to the Mississippi River.  The majority of the bypassing will occur near the Market Street Lift Station, located on the upstream side of the south boat ramps south of the Memorial Auditorium.  A temporary sign indicating health warning due to the presence of the untreated sewage will be placed at the ramps in association with this scheduled bypass and will be removed sometime after bypassing has ceased.  The only other location at which bypassing will be occurring is from the Bonn’s Hollow Box combined sewer located west of Main Street, near the wastewater plant.   Bypass, there, will enter the river upstream of the wastewater plant’s on-site final effluent discharge structure.   The pipe replacement project is expected to be completed the same day.
