    The Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department (RWRD) will soon start a major sewer rehabilitation project that may affect travel along The Loop, particularly through the Rillito River Park.

    RWRD is rehabilitating the South Rillito West Central Interceptor (SRI), a major sewer line that is bordered by the Rillito River to the north, Tucson Boulevard to the west, Columbus Boulevard to the east and Fort Lowell Road to the south.

    This project, which is scheduled to start in January 2014, is one of three major rehabilitation and construction projects slated to begin next year. The goal of these projects is to rehabilitate aging sewer lines and to build a new sewer line to minimize the potential for future sanitary sewer overflows. During the SRI rehabilitation project, residents and/or businesses may experience intermittent restrictions in the area.

    Pima County will have a public meeting at:
    Davidson Elementary School
    3950 E. Paradise Falls Drive, Tucson, AZ 85712
    Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013
    6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
    Brief presentation at 6:45 p.m.
    The meeting will focus on the contractor work schedule, anticipated impacts to roadways, detours and access concerns. (This meeting follows our initial public meeting at the same location on Oct. 22, 2013, to introduce the project to neighborhoods, businesses and residents in the area.)

    If you have questions in advance of the meeting or cannot attend, please contact Kathy Jirschele on the project information line (520) 622-2527 or via email. For more information, please visit the project website at www.sewerimprovements.info.
