Environmental Services has completed construction of 17,000 feet of public sewer pipes in the Overlook neighborhood that were between 60 and 90 years old and in poor condition. The project also included constructing about 9,100 feet of six-inch sewer branch pipes to connect homes and businesses to the new public sewer pipes. Completion of this project will protect the public and the environment by reducing the possibility of costly breaks, leaks, blockages and sewage releases to homes, businesses and streets.
