North 40 Sewer Improvements

First Utility District of Knox County (FUD) has designed a project to improve capacity in a sewer basin north of Interstate 40. For the initial phase of work, approximately 2,000-ft of gravity main will be upsized from 15” to 21” from north of Outlet Drive to the south side of Interstate 40. The project has been extensively coordinated with property owners, environmental constraints, and constructability issues. The project is being bid in May of 2019 and is expected to be complete by January of 2020. The second phase of work will include a pump station and force main to route flow around an undersized gravity sewer line.
