Whether riding horseback through the “Trail Riding Capital of the Southeast” or exploring the natural treasures of the portal to Big South Fork Country — home to sandstone bluffs, natural bridges, refreshing waterfalls and two of the largest natural arches in the Eastern U.S. — the people of Jamestown are used to blazing trails.

As the home of great American revolutionaries and intriguing rogues, not to mention World War I hero Sgt. Alvin C. York, Jamestown offers a fascinating and multidimensional view of our nation’s history. And with features like the landmark York Gristmill, perched along the Wolf River; world-famous 127-Sale, the world’s longest yard sale; and Highland Manor, Tennessee’s oldest winery, Jamestown visitors and locals can enjoy a great range of cultural and consumer attractions.

Even with its own municipal airport and location on U.S. Highway 127, Jamestown manages to remain seemingly tucked away in the quiet, peaceful country of the Upper Cumberland — ready for you to discover. Blaze your trail.

Project Budget:
Sanitary Sewer System Rehabilitation Program
Product Description:
The City of Jamestown is currently in its fourth year of work on a comprehensive sewer system rehabilitation program. This program is necessary in order to replace ageing infrastructure based on a prioritized and strategic approach, which allows the City to plan for and allocate funds to the areas of the sewer system that need the most attention. During the early phases of the program in 2010, it became apparent that the Wallace Community sewer system was the highest priority. Funds were sought and acquired through the Community Development Block Grant Program and the project completed during 2011. Continuing forward with the program, following completion of the Wallace Community Sewer System Improvements, the North Jamestown Sewer Interceptor was the next priority. Funds were again sought and acquired through the Community Development Block Grant Program with the project completed during 2013. The program is continuing forward and our latest efforts indicate that the Central Avenue Sewer Interceptor is the current priority for capital funding for the City. The City has requested funding from the Community Development Block Grant Program for this phase of the work as the overall Sanitary Sewer System Evaluation Program.
Project Status:
The City continues with the rehabilitation program and anticipates doing so for many years to come. The City has acquired state-of-the-art flow monitoring technology which allows us to better understand and prioritize our sewer system needs. By staying ahead of the needs and not simply applying “band aids” to the problem areas, we are able to properly plan for and fund program priorities.
