The City of Wilmington looks to repair aging wastewater infrastructure
Wilmington is getting over $3 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to rehabilitate and repair part of its aging wastewater infrastructure.
The city will specifically target a mile and a half long stretch of combined sewer main constructed in the early 1900s using concrete or brick piping.
The goal is to extend the life of the pipeline, improve flow control, and decrease localized flooding.
The repairs could extend the life of the pipeline by 50 years.
