Construction is in its early stages. Crews are laying ground on their installation of pipes, which will prevent overflow from the St. Marys River.
The intersection of Indian Village Boulevard / Manito Boulevard is closed.
As part of City Utilities’ investment in reducing combined sewage flow in the rivers, this $11 million investment will serve the Indian Village neighborhood and protect the St. Marys River. Nearly 20 million gallons of combined sewage flows into the St. Marys each year from the current piping system for this area. A 48-inch diameter consolidation sewer pipe and a large diversion structure are being constructed. They will go under Bluffton Road, the St. Marys, and Foster Park to connect to the drop shaft near Old Mill Road and the Three Rivers Protection and Overflow Protection Tunnel (3RPORT).
This is a challenging project near Indian Village that will require digging down more than 30 feet in a tight space between Manito Boulevard and Bluffton Road on property owned by the City. All necessary safety measures will be in place during the construction process to ensure the safety of both our workers and the public. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.
