15 Mile Road Work Back on Schedule

Sewage Flows In to 15 Mile Repair Trench No Injuries;
Cause Under Investigation
During the overnight hours of Monday-Tuesday, Aug. 21-22, the trench being used to repair the 15 Mile Sewer Collapse filled with sewage. Initially, about 9 feet of sewage filled the bottom of the trench and the level later went down to about 6 feet. The sewage is in the process of being pumped out and returned to the sanitary sewer system further downstream.
No one was in the trench at the time of the incident and there were no injuries.
