Sewer Jetting Begins This Week


Crews with the City of Pocatello Water Pollution Control Department are starting the annual cleaning of the city’s sanitary sewer lines.

Jetting the mainlines is the primary preventive maintenance procedure on the pipe network. To jet a line, crews utilize a specialized truck to perform the task and the equipment uses highly pressurized water driven through nozzles to clear material and debris that may be trapped in the line. The work is estimated to wrap up in the fall.

Traffic control devices will direct motorists around worksites. Crews will finish the work in each area as quickly as possible; however, motorists may experience delays. The public’s understanding and cooperation are greatly appreciated.

Pocatello residents are served by more than 250 miles of sanitary sewer lines and 23 sewer lift/pump stations. The Water Pollution Control facility located on Rio Vista Road treats roughly 7.5 million gallons of wastewater daily.

If the public has any questions, they are invited to contact the staff with Water Pollution Control at 234-6254.
