Bellevue approves $264,000 in COVID-19 relief funds for water and sewer work

Aug 22, 2022

The Bellevue City Council approved on Monday the use of approximately $264,000 for water and sewer infrastructure from the more than $773,000 it received from federal American Rescue Plan Act funding during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The city’s water department fund will receive $214,137.99 to help cover the projected $426,000 cost of replacing a “critical” water line in Muldoon Canyon at the EE-DA-HO Ranch. The city’s sewer department will receive $50,000 in ARPA funds.

Prior to the appropriation, Brandon Keller of Keller Associates presented details on cost overruns and time delays associated with a now two-year effort to replace cracked sewer lagoon liners at the city’s sewer plant on Glendale Road. A year ago, the city approved Keller’s request for a $776,717 expense to fix two liners at the plant, part of Keller’s requested $1.2 million overall repair project.
