Project Double Green
Small changes. Huge results.


CWL has awarded the contract for the exterior renovation of the Yates building located at 315/317 East Street, and work is expected to start in November. This will be an exterior-only renovation and will mostly focus on the front (east) face of the building. The renovation will greatly enhance the appearance of the building and increase our potential for finding a tenant to lease the building. Our goal is to complete the renovations by 2015.


CWL has contracted SSR Engineers to assist us in constructing a hydraulic model of our water system. The model will become an ongoing planning and analysis tool that will help us to identify and size needed upgrades to our water pipe network as our customer's water demands grow.


CWL is working with the City of Jonesboro on two sanitary sewer projects which are being funded through grant funds that were acquired by the city. The projects are:

  1. Dalton Farmer Road commercial area (approximately 4,500' of 12" gravity sewer)
  2. Tonya Drive residential area (approximately 600' of 12" and 4000' of 8" gravity sewer)

The Dalton Farmer Road Construction has been awarded, and work should start in November. Tonya Drive plans are complete and approved by the Arkansas Department of Health. This project should be bid in mid-fall.


Long Range Goals

  • System study including placement of flow monitors in individual basins;
  • Analysis and documentation of current projects;
  • Evaluate lift stations and capacity issues;
  • Develop CMOM document;
  • Develop a check list for items that ADEQ typically requires;
  • Work on CWL communication and organization (software, record keeping, etc.);
  • Evaluate preventive maintenance, public relations, and overall management of wastewater system.
