Rehabilitating a sewer lift station is a dirty job, but it’s something that needs to be done in order to keep providing such services to residents of any town or municipality.

That is what a crew with RM Walsdorf Inc. of Brownsville began doing last week in Los Fresnos.

Carlos Salazar, the city’s public works director, said the rehabilitation project involves replacing pipes, pumps and other pieces of equipment to two sewer lift stations.

The first lift station is along FM 1847 where a crew was spotted working last week.

Company employees were working in and around the station’s 13 foot hole that looks like an inverted tunnel.

Salazar said after the crew completes their task, they will then move to a second lift station near Los Fresnos High School.

The project is set to cost more than $20,000.

“These stations require some maintenance,” he said, “and this rehabilitation project is part of that.”
