(COLUMBIA, MO) ~ Columbia Sewer Utility to Hold Public Meeting on Proposed Sewer Improvement Project

The City of Columbia Sewer Utility has announced a public information meeting to discuss a proposed sewer improvement project in the Sunset Drive area. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 1 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at City Hall in Conference Room 1A/1B.

According to the Utility, the project aims to replace the privately maintained sewer system for property owners near Sunset Drive, Prospect Street, and Crestland Avenue. This will involve constructing a public sanitary sewer to serve these customers.

The proposed improvements are part of the Utility's Private Common Collector Elimination program, which was initiated in 2008. Private common collectors have been identified as major sources of inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sewer system. By replacing these outdated private sewers and connecting properties to the publicly maintained system, the City hopes to reduce backups and overflows.
