The City of Columbia Sewer Utility is holding an interested parties meeting from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 at City Hall 1C, 701 E. Broadway, to discuss the upcoming private common collector elimination (PCCE) 22 sewer project located near Shannon Place. Information and diagrams showing the proposed project will be available for public review and City staff will be present to answer questions.
Private common collectors are major sources of inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sewer system. Replacing the outdated private sewer and connecting these properties into the publicly maintained sewer can reduce the occurrence of backups and overflows.
The purpose of this meeting is to present the plan for disconnecting properties from the private common collector in the area, constructing a new public sewer main and connecting these property laterals into the new system. Investment for this project is anticipated to be $90,000 and will be paid for from the Private Common Collector Elimination fund in the Sewer Utility.
