About the 2014 Sewer Rehabilitation Project

The Sewer Rehabilitation Project is a part of a comprehensive sewer plan that will allow for increased capacity to handle tributary waste flows from existing, proposed and future developments. This phase of the Sewer Rehabilitation Project (Kietzke/East 2nd/Kuenzli/Giroux) is anticipated to be complete by June 15.

The timing and scheduling of this project has been coordinated with Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), Renown Regional Medical Facility, Reno-Sparks Tribal Health Center and RTC RIDE.
