The Russellville wastewater collections system consists of approximately 170 miles of publicly maintained gravity sewer ranging in size from 6″ to 36″ in diameter, approximately 3291 manholes, 18 lift stations of various pumping capacities and 14.1 miles of force main ranging in size from 2″ through 48″ in diameter. Approximately 9,000 homes and businesses, and the service lines connecting these homes and businesses constitute an additional 129 miles of sewers, predominantly 4″ in diameter. (This figure does not include the Dover sewers.) The predominate material for the gravity sewer lines was vitrified clay, with masonry manholes prior to 1970. Beginning in approximately 1970, ABS truss pipe began to be used as an alternative to vitrified clay. Beginning in approximately 1980, SDR 26 PVC with monolithically poured concrete manholes began to be the predominate collection system material. Older service lines are vitrified clay with limited substitution of “Orangeburg” fiber tube. Present day service line installations are constructed of solvent welded schedule 40 PVC pipe.
The Russellville wastewater system includes 18 lift stations that serve various parts of the City. The system treats all of Dover sanitary sewer. However, statistics for the Dover, Arkansas collection basin are not included.
