The City of Columbia Sewer Utility is holding an interested parties meeting Wednesday, Sept. 4, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Conference Room 1C of City Hall, 701 E. Broadway, to discuss the upcoming sewer relocation project at Court Street and Hickory Street. Information and diagrams showing the proposed project will be available for public review and City staff will be present to answer questions.
In an effort to reduce sanitary sewer overflows, this project will include replacing the deteriorating six-inch sewer line along Court Street and Hickory Street with an eight-inch PVC pipe. It will also include replacing two sewer mains under College Avenue and relocating the public sewer from under an existing building. These upgrades will improve hydraulics of the overall system. The purpose of this meeting is to present the construction plan and explain any impacts this project could have on residents in the area.
Construction is anticipated to take place in the next three to five years. Investment for this project is estimated at $507,000 and will be paid for with the Sewer Utility - Enterprise Revenue Fund.
