We’re Making Improvements in Your Area.
GRU is performing a large-scale, three-year assessment of its wastewater collection system so the utility can efficiently and cost-effectively renew and update aging infrastructure. This effort will result in a systematic plan to repair and replace the collection system and reduce inflow and infiltration of rainwater and groundwater into the system. This work is important to ensure the reliability and integrity of our wastewater system.
