    Manhole ArtThe Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department (RWRD) participated in its first-ever public art project by working together with a local sculptor, three neighborhood associations, school volunteers, and a community center to design 55 manhole covers. This initiative is part of Pima County’s commitment to achieving multiple community benefits in art. The project has five themes; hope, unity, culture, and diversity and is located south of downtown along the east side of I-10; along 36th street, between South Euclid Avenue and South 6th Avenue.

    RWRD’s Southeast Sewer Interceptor project is expected to be complete this month and has worked with Sculptor Jason Butler, a local art teacher and University of Arizona graduate who spearheaded the project’s artwork. Mr. Butler worked closely with students at Ochoa and Mission View Elementary School, and with volunteers at the Santa Rosa Community Center.
