Monday Headlines: Sewer Plans for City are $150 Million over 40 Years

The City Council in St. Joseph, Missouri will vote tonight on approving a $2.7 million contract to craft a facilities plan that will determine how the city spends $150 million on sewers over the next 40 years. The city’s combined sewer overflow long-term control plan will cost $450 million over 120 years.

The most expensive and elaborate portion of Lynchburg, Virginia’s CSO project was just completed. At a cost of $70 million, the city is replacing the James River Interceptor, a 7-mile sewer pipe that runs from Reusens Dam to the Lower Basin and collects sewage from the entire city.

Some Milford, Massachusetts residents had their homes “sewer-soaked” when untreated wastewater overflowed from the municipal system  because of heavy rains.

Work crews are expected to be on Main Street in downtown Stratford, Connecticut until about 4 p.m. today following a water main break early this morning.

A large water main break flooded a Colorado Springs, Colorado home and shut down two lanes of traffic on Saturday. When the main broke, it started letting out about 16-hundred gallons of water every minute.
