Bigger Sewer, Green Projects Save City Millions

June 05, 2018

Council gave its approval Monday to obtain an EPA Water Pollution Control Loan for the CSO Rack 3 Kelly Conveyance and Chittenden Green Projects. They include up-sizing sewers and building green solution to reduce runoff water that enters the sewer system. The city will save more than $10 million by eliminating the need for one retention basin. Also Monday, council approved a $1 per month rate hike for city trash services.
