Completion Date For La Salle Wastewater Plant Running Behind

Posted by wlpo on March 7, 2011

Weather and site conditions are some of the reasons the general contractor for La Salle’s east side wastewater plant is getting extra time to finish the job.

Sjostrom and Sons had said they would reach substantial completion by January 26 of this year, but that date has been rescheduled for June 13.

Reasons they gave for extending the project included delays with awarding bids and weather related issues.  Work began in the fall of 2008.

The city’s paying nearly $15 million for the project using federal stimulus funding, which required an increase in sewer rates.

Once it’s completed, the plant will handle all of the sewage from the area east of I-39.
