Bethel, Alaska, taking bids on dredging for Sewer Lagoon Rehabilitation Project
The city of Bethel, Alaska is currently taking construction bids on part of the Bethel Sewer Lagoon Rehabilitation Project.
According to Bethel’s City grant manager John Sargent, the undertaking has two parts: dredging the lagoon, and repairing the jetty where the sewer trucks release waste into the lagoon. The jetty itself has been falling apart and began to sink into the lagoon.
“The reason we got funding for this project was to put the lagoon back together the way it was originally designed,” Sargent told Alaska public media organization KYUK. “It’s not working right now the way it is.” This project highlights the importance of regular repairs and maintenance; aspects that Bethel is focusing on to prevent any ecological harm.
