Major updates made to city’s wastewater infrastructure

Major updates are being made to Shreveport’s wastewater infrastructure; the Stoner Force Main Improvements Project is now complete.

On Thursday, March 23, 2023, Clean Water Shreveport and the Office of Mayor Arceneaux will be hosting a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony along with Water and Sewerage Director, William Daniel, district City Council, and the contractor and designer for this Critical Infrastructure Project. This Ribbon Cutting will take place at the Stoner Lift Station, 857 E Stoner Ave, Shreveport, LA 71104, at 9am.

The Stoner Force Main is one of the City’s major wastewater system assets. With piping that conveys wastewater a 7-mile stretch from the Stoner Lift Station to the Lucas Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Stoner Force Main serves about one-third of the City, including Stoner Hill, the downtown area, Highlands, South Highlands, Anderson Island, Broadmoor, Querbes, Dixie Garden, and University Terrace.

The improvements on this project included the replacement of about one-third of the Stoner Force Main which was in poor condition and had a history of failures. After making this $9 million investment, the City has new infrastructure that meets regulatory standards and will properly serve the area citizens for decades to come.
