In the spring and early summer of 2017, Environmental Services will install a valve and underground vault at three separate locations in the city to reduce the rare build-up of air pressure in the public sewer system that can occur during intense rainstorms. The valves will help to ensure the sewer system operates safely and efficiently. Construction is anticipated to begin in May 2017 and last about two weeks at each location.
