ANDERSON – IN – Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr., The City of Anderson Water Department and consultants and contractors are putting together a project in order to rehabilitate the City of Anderson sewer system on the northwest side of the city.
The Project includes lining the 84-inch and 96-inch Greensbranch Sewer under Locust Street from 13th Street to 9th Street and under 9th Street from Locust Street to Arrow Avenue (approximately 3,500 feet total). The brick access manholes along the sewer route will also be lined as part of this project. The Project is required by the State of Indiana (IDEM) as part of the City’s Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Long Term Control Plan.
This project is necessary because these pipes are over 100 years old and in great danger of corrosion. If corrosion occurs, the cost to rehabilitate our sewage system will be extreme. This project will ultimately prevent catastrophic failure to our sewers.
Residents affected will be in the area of Locust Street from Ninth to 13th streets and from Locust Street to Arrow Avenue. This project will last several months. However, the goal of officials is to get it finished as quickly and with as little disturbance to our citizens as possible.
“The sewer line was costly to repair and not as efficient as in the past,” Mayor Broderick said. “This is part of the city’s long-term control plan that was agreed upon by the federal government.”
