Tunnel Works Program & MamaJo
The Tunnel Works Program represents a major part of Fort Wayne’s efforts to implement the 2008 Long-Term Control Plan and associated Consent Decree with the US Environmental Protection Agency. The premier project—the deep rock tunnel—is currently being constructed in the bedrock deep below the city, headed up by the MamaJo boring machine.
City Utilities completes many types of stormwater drainage projects each year—from small repairs to large system expansions and replacements. Some projects add capacity to the existing storm sewer system to reduce flooding, while other projects add new service areas into the system due to development.
Septic Elimination Program
City Utilities is working to eliminate failing septic systems in the city by making connections to public sanitary sewer systems available for these properties.
