Did you know the City of Mesa is in the process of installing sewer lines in neighborhoods that currently use septic systems? And what’s better, for eligible residents needing assistance there is also a grant program. Qualified homeowners can take advantage of the Housing Rehabilitation Program which primarily gives assistance for housing issues that affect plumbing and electrical hazards, as well as energy efficiency issues. The actual amount of repairs needed will be determined through an inspection and evaluation of the home. But wait, there’s more good news. Mesa is currently building a brand new state-of-the-art Wastewater Treatment Facility. The Signal Butte Water Treatment Plant will have a resilient and powerful process design that utilizes multiple techniques for maximum operational flexibility and treatment of varying raw water qualities. The plant will integrate safe and reliable water treatment technology with automation and quality monitoring systems to safeguard public health. Additionally, the complete concept includes recreational components such as pedestrian and bike paths through the park- complete with surrounding berms, desert trees, shrubs and an eight-foot block wall surrounding the water treatment plant.
Interesting fact: every toilet and sink in your home have water supply lines that connect into the home’s fresh water system. Each toilet has one supply line and every sink has two: one for hot and one for cold. There are a few things to keep in mind when attempting a repair of these lines. The water shut-off valve: be sure to turn off the main water line outside your house prior to repair. Drain all of the water lines in your home. Once you’ve shut off your home’s water line, go to the lowest faucet in your home and open it to drain the water from the pipes. Also, once you’ve removed and replaced your lines, be sure to thoroughly test for drips and any leaks.
