(COLUMBIA, MO) ~ Columbia Sewer Utility Holds Public Meeting to Discuss Proposed Sewer Improvement Project

The City of Columbia Sewer Utility has announced a public information meeting to discuss a proposed sewer improvement project near the intersection of West Broadway and Aldeah Avenue. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 18, 2024, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Conference Room 1C at City Hall.

According to the Utility, the proposed project aims to replace the privately maintained sewer system for property owners near the intersection. If approved, a new public sanitary sewer will be constructed to serve these customers.

This project is part of the Utility's Private Common Collector Elimination (PCCE) project, which began in 2008. Private common collectors have been identified as major sources of inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sanitary sewer system. By replacing these outdated private sewers and connecting properties into the publicly maintained sewer, the City hopes to reduce backups and overflows.
