    Environmental Services has almost completed design of a project to repair about 250 feet of 100-year-old sewer pipe in NW Flanders Street between NW 12th and 11th avenues. The public sewer in NW Flanders Street was constructed in 1916 and is showing signs of wear and tear. This project will reduce the risks of sewage releases to businesses and streets and sewer service interruptions that could occur as a result of pipe collapse.
