Enterprise is in the process of modernizing its two sewage treatment lagoons.
It carries a price tag of more than a half-million dollars.
The main problem for workers is sludge removal from each of the lagoons.
Mayor Kenneth Boswell says the council has undertaken the project to satisfy new regulations by the state department of environmental management.
Enterprise is part of the state's effort to satisfy environmental concerns in all corners of Alabama.
At this time, the city is in the process of getting bids from companies interested in removing the 30-years worth of septic sludge at the lagoons.
