Beginning Tuesday evening August 8, 2023 the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) will be preparing for a major repair procedure. The procedure is predicted to last until Thursday August 10th. During this time, the WWTP will be unable to discharge treated wastewater. This means the WWTP will need to retain incoming wastewater within its retention basins. The City of Lewiston and Peopleservice are confident we have the storage capacity to accommodate wastewater flows during this time.
However, the City of Lewiston is asking residents and businesses to do what they can to limit the amount of wastewater they discharge to the sewer system during the duration of the repair.
We thank you for your willingness to assist the Public Works Department and Peopleservice during this time.
If you have any questions, please contact Erik Fredberg at (507) 523-2257
