Your federal stimulus dollars at work still on city sewers

Federal stimulus cash is still working in Fort Wayne. The city plans to use more than $400,000 in leftover stimulus money to make sewer system improvements.

The stimulus money will allow City Utilities to expand a $1.3 million sewer separation project near Parnell and Crescent avenues to include replacing an old cast-iron water main installed in the 1930s along Kenwood Avenue. The stimulus money will also cover the reconstruction of the street.

The work will prevent sewer overflows from sending untreated sewage into the rivers, as well as stopping sewage backup into 230 nearby homes.

The project is another good example of work that wouldn’t get done if left to the private sector.
