Environmental Services is replacing and repairing about 2,200 feet of aging public sewer pipe that the city installed in 1913. The 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.The city's contractor has completed pipe installation for this project. Temporary asphalt is currently covering the trenches where pipe has been installed. Work crews will begin applying permanent pavement to these trenches the week of June 23, 2014.
