Lamp Rynearson has been working with the City of Kearney for decades, providing necessary water and wastewater improvements to their community. Our engineers completed a Sewer System Master Plan for the City at the end of 2002, which included a planning area of approximately 30 sections of land in and around Kearney, Missouri. The study established a basis of design for the ultimate development of the Fishing River and Clear Creek Drainage areas.
As a result of the planning study, Phase I of the West Creek Sewer, which was completed in 2004, was constructed to serve a portion of the Fishing Creek Watershed. The $1.7 million interceptor sewer, which included approximately 13,000 linear feet of 24” and 27” diameter interceptor sewer and creek and interstate highway crossings, provided the City of Kearney with the ability to serve patrons west of Highway I-35.
Phase II of the interceptor allowed decommissioning of two lift stations and opened up a large area on the west side of the City to new development. Design of Phase II of the interceptor was completed by our firm in 2018 and construction of the 8,840 feet of 8” through 24” PVC sewer was completed in 2019.
