City of Elkhart receives final loan approval for the sewage storage project

Posted:
ELKHART -

Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore announced the city received the final loan approval for the new sewage tank project.

The 700,000 project consists of construction of a one million gallon underground storage tank to hold a mixture of raw sewage and storm water.

This is to try to prevent sewage from running into the Elkhart River.

After this project is complete, the city says 8 million gallons of raw sewage will be eliminated from running into the river every year. 

Construction is set to begin July 25th.
