Fort Wayne Project Completion Reduces Pollution in St. Joseph River

WBOI News recently reported on the completion of a project in Fort Wayne to decrease the amount of sewage overflow into the St. Joseph River. ¬†Fort Wayne’s sewers would overflow during heavy rains, whouch would carry sewage and pollution into the river, and a 2008 mandate required that Fort Wayne and other cities had to reduce the number of overflows.

The city managed to complete the project four years ahead of schedule and cost less than they expected by increasing utility rates.
