What We're Doing

The City of Stillwater and Stillwater Utilities Authority is replacing and upsizing a sewer line in order to alleviate sewer overflows that occur during heavy rainfall events. The 2,600 linear feet of sewer line will be upsized to 24 inch diameter, with new manholes and service line reconnections.


Anticipated Milestones

  • Anticipated Date (Design): Design began FY2018
  • Anticipated Date (Construction): FY2020
  • Anticipated Date (Completion): FY2022

Benefits of the Project

This project serves to increase capacity of the sewer system to handle the increased flows experienced from new development in the City's east basin sewer drainage basin. 


Budget & Funding
