Hurricane Preparation

One of the Stationary Generators Typical of Those at Each Major Facility

The PRCUA has recently held meetings to review and discuss hurricane preparation efforts to insure that we are prepared to respond to any bad weather events. UA personnel stand ready to respond if there is an event. All UA owned generators have been tested and topped with fuel. In addition the UA now has fuel storage and transport  capacity. Our plan has been reviewed and updated so that we are capable of responding.

Highland Commons Parkway Sewer Pumping Station

The Sewer Pumping Station along the new Highland Commons Parkway is now complete and in service. This new station will enhance wastewater flow in the area and provide additional capacity for the new hospital and any future development along the Parkway. This station will also remove some pressure off of our current service area serving resident just north of the Parkway.

This completed project was paid for with grant money and will provide dependable service for the community for many years to come.

Circle Drive Sewer Line Rehab

[More Pictures]

Pearl River Utility Authority announces that “Emergency Repairs” have begun on a failing 12 inch sewer line on Circle Drive in Picayune. Due to underground pipe failures the sewer lines are not functioning as they should and repair and replacement is needed. Currently an emergency by-pass pump system has been set up and transferring wastewater to the pump station so residents can continue to use their facilities.

These emergency repairs will consist of installing 750’ of new 14” pipe along with three new sewer manholes. In addition, approximately 1330’ of pipe will be lined in place and will not involve excavation.

The street is partially closed and will remain closed until all repairs are complete. Traffic during construction will be rerouted as needed. Once all piping is repaired or replaced, the street will be repaired and reopened for traffic. The repairs for this project are anticipated to take approximately 30-45 days to complete.

We regret any inconvenience to the local residents as we move forward with this required infrastructure improvement. Any questions regarding this project can be directed to the Utility Authority office by calling 601-799-5259.
