Pictured above are three of the six sludge drying beds at the Haleyville Water Works and Sewer Board’s main wastewater treatment plant. These beds would be rehabilitated and two more would be built in the grassy area to the right if one project on HWWSB’s wish list of funding needs, which was recently sent to ADEM, are approved.
HALEYVILLE - The Haleyville Water Works and Sewer Board has informed the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) of four more projects that it would like to undertake in the future.

Double Springs wanting a change in water contract

HALEYVILLE - Where does your water come from? In most places in the county, it comes from either Bear Creek or Brushy Creek. Double Springs residents receive water from both places, purchasing water from Haleyville (Bear Creek) and Arley (Brushy Creek). Double Springs has had a contract with Haleyville to purchase water for nearly 41 years, which is now in renegotiations.

Mineral Springs sewer area to get face lift

The septic tank at Mineral Springs was one of three installed in the city in 1931.
HALEYVILLE - Many years ago, not far from the railroad in the bustling town of Haleyville and east of Alabama Avenue, there was a three-story hotel, advertised all around as a place for clean and healthy water. During its approximate 30 years, it accommodated many. As Haleyville grew, so did the need for a sewer system to be installed. One of the places selected to have a septic tank was in the woods behind the hotel. Today, the septic tank, no longer in use, will be removed during renovations from the Haleyville Water Works and Sewer Board.

HALEYVILLE - A good fiscal year with sound accounting gave the Haleyville Water Works and Sewer Board a satisfying review of their finances by Rick McCabe, CPA, of McCabe and Associates of Fayette. The review was given at the regular monthly meeting Tuesday, Feb. 25. The finances were in great shape, according to McCabe, allowing the board to adopt a resolution for a clean water state revolving fund revenue bond.

$1.1 million resolution passed for water and sewer improvements

Mayor Ken Sunseri has just signed a resolution for the 2019 Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan in the amount of $1,182,100.
HALEYVILLE - When the Haleyville Water Works and Sewer Board did not receive the principal forgiveness of $500,000 on a $1.5 million loan, not all of the items could be completed at this time. The HWWSB approved a resolution for one of the scenarios given by Engineer Calvin Cassady in the amount of $1,182,100, at their meeting, Tuesday, May 28, for the 2019 “Clean Water State Revolving Fund” loan.

Principal forgiveness not forgiven

Pump station 12, in Blake Curve on Newburg Road, is one of the pump stations to be replaced with money received from the $1 million loan.

HALEYVILLE - When the Haleyville Water Works and Sewer Board applied for a $1.5 million loan to work on a sewer project, it was hoped to receive principal forgiveness in the amount of $500,000. The loan was approved, but Haleyville did not qualify for the principal forgiveness, as other cities showed more need. This was the topic at the recent board meeting on Tuesday, April 23.
