Sewage problems

Decatur is one step closer to reaching a solution regarding city sewage problems. The Director of Decatur Public Works, Richard Marley, says the city has been working with the EPA to find a solution to sewage problems since 2008. The EPA is most concerned with sanitary sewage overflow in ten sewer sites in Decatur. Those sites include manholes in the road or in yards of properties.
Sanitary sewage, like toilet water, overflows from the manhole lid and into streams, roads, and ditches. Marley says the overflowing comes as a result from blockage in the line or inflow in infiltration during wet weather. City officials are proposing to double the cleaning efforts. Decatur will submit a response to the EPA on November.
