The RESCU Program

The RESCU Program describes eleven projects which constitute full replacement and rehabilitation of SVCW’s conveyance system. RESCU includes the Gravity Pipeline, Front of Plant, Pump Stations, and Belmont Force Main projects. The Front of Plant includes six of the eleven projects. The Conveyance System Improvements Environmental Impact Report completed and adopted by the SVCW Commission in April 2017 covers work to be done under all the RESCU Program projects.

Just back from a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, I am filled with the sense of gratitude for all that I have in my life. Not the least of which is the fulfilment I feel when I look around and see all the great projects we’re embarked upon. There are so many cities, counties, states that have failing infrastructure and it is always a challenge to raise the funds to fix those basic public facilities we’ve all come to rely on.

I give a huge amount of credit to all of our ratepayers and our elected officials to have the foresight and courage to make the tough… and right… decisions. When faced with our failing sewer force main and pump stations, the stakeholders within our service area stepped up and accepted the responsibility to fix these important public facilities.

So, this month’s message is a message of gratitude to all of those who are behind the RESCU projects… the engineers, designers, builders, manufacturers, managers, and elected officials. And most importantly, those who made it all possible… our ratepayers. Thank you.
