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


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.
