Sewer work has commenced in Washington

Work is now underway on the City of Washington’s 2019 sewer project. Various work including excavation, point repairs of failed pipe segments, cured-in-place lining of pipe segments and manhole rehabilitations will be performed in many locations throughout the eastern area of town through the beginning of October. No street closures are anticipated at this time, but residents may observe construction signage and contractor vehicles throughout the area during this time period. The $1.2 million project is 50 percent funded by a federal Community Development Block Grant.
