The City of Duluth has finally fixed the ongoing issue of sewage overflow into Lake Superior. Working hand in hand with the EPA, this health issue for the community has been diverted. This has pleased all parties working together to come to an agreement on the most effective way to deal with a health hazard, in addition to greatly benefiting residents. The City has taken proven measures to keep sewage where it needs to be…away. Pumps have been installed at various key locations in this effort.
The overflow problem was, in large part, due to rainwater that was saturating the sewage system and damaging the already overloaded infrastructure holding its ground. It’s also noted that residents of Duluth now pay just under $6.00/ mo. on water and sewage bills to go toward the overflow containment.
Now after over 20 years of continual problems with sewage overflows, along with nearly $160 million spent, it’s comforting to know that this messy nuisance is under control. With all the rainwater and snow melting quickly at seasonal changes, keep Perma-Liner in mind for state of the art trenchless pipeline repair.
