Big Savings On Akron Sewer Project

Written by

The City of Akron is saving $17 million dollars on the cost of its sewer improvement project, through a reduced interest rate on a loan from the Ohio EPA.

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan says the city is committed to meeting environmental obligations and improving water quality, while also finding ways to reduce the cost of sewer projects for Akron rate payers.

Meanwhile, work has begun on Cuyahoga Street, for the Carpenter Sewer Separation project.

The $2.3 million dollar project is part of the city's massive, federally-mandated effort to separate sanitary sewers from storm sewers.
