Amarillo’s City Council has approved the purchase of property for sewer remediation.

The property is in the Hillside Terrace Estates

The City of Amarillo filed a lawsuit almost seven years ago to establish responsibility for the sewer line collapse, with documents showing much of the suit is still pending resolution.

The sewer line has been re-routed and by taking possession of the land, the city will have control of 11 acres of property on the city’s southwest side.

The land purchase is within Lauder Street and Arden Road. the city is working on a recovery plan that the project, once approved by the state will begin.
