Jamestown Updating Sewer Pump Station

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

The City of Jamestown is now accepting bids for renovations to the city’s main sewer pump station.

The city first updated the electrical panel system for the station, but Mayor Lyndon Baines said some of the pumps have operated for over 10 years and also need updating.

“We just wanted to bring it up to date and code,” Baines said. “If we left it how it was and just fixed it back, we may have to go back and spend more money to bring it up to code, so we figured we would just go ahead and do it all at one time to get it done.”

The project is expected to cost around $450,000. Baines said the city is currently discussing options to use certificates of deposit to pay for the project. Bids are due by the end of May. 

Baines said bids will be opened in mid June. If the city accepts an offer, the project should be complete in September before winter approaches. Jamestown’s City Council first approved the project in March. 

The average life span of a sewage pump is five to 15 years depending on the population of the city.
