WWTP: Root Control Treatment

Motion to approve a contract with Duke's Root Control, Inc. to treat various sewer lines for a total cost not to exceed $30,000.00.

Once every three years we scheduled maintenance root control for our problem areas.   We have a quote from Duke's Root Control foam treatment for an estimated $30,000.  The cost proposal is to apply root control to 19,419 lineal feet of sewer line.  We have used this service with good results in the past.  Final quantities and total cost may vary slightly based on actual measured lengths obtained during the work.
