Environmental Assessment released July 15, 2014, for 30-day public review, for project alternatives and a recommended plan for sewer improvements in Porter County. The project would improve the efficiency and capability of the existing deteriorated storm sewer system to the residents of Valparaiso. Improvements would alleviate commonly-occurring leakage and cases of sewer backup affecting residential areas and reduce potential groundwater pollution. The proposed project would reline up to 19,361 linear feet of existing deteriorated sanitary sewer lines; and up to 70 manholes within the relined-sanitary sewers will be inspected and relined, as needed. Work would begin in 2014 with completion anticipated within approximately 12 months.
