Arcata in the News
The City has contracted with V & C Construction to repair 15 broken sewer mains and install 16 sewer manholes around Arcata, including the Downtown area. There have been weather delays to this project, which is near completion as of Friday, November 21. Thank you for your patience as we work to repair and maintain our valuable city infrastructure. For more information, visit the Construction Projects page.
This holiday season (and all year round), please remember to dispose of cooking oil and grease in the trash and not down the drain. Wipe greasy pots and dishes with a paper towel before washing, and pour cooking oil into a container, freeze until hardened, then toss in the trash. Taking these extra steps can save money in plumbing and sewer repairs.More tips on grease disposal
Watch a video of Dale Farris, Senior Maintenance Worker for the Public Works Department's Streets Division. Dale is one of a ten member crew that maintains 120 curb miles of sidewalk and over 6,000 water service connections in Arcata. "One of us is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year," Dale says. "If there's a water or sewer emergency on the city side of your property, call the Police Department and they'll dispatch the right person to come and solve the problem."Our People...Our Community...Ourcata
