Council focuses on aging sewers

The Brownstown Town Council voted to spend $12,300 to obtain more information about the community’s aging sanitary sewer system.

The decision came Monday night after Wessler Engineering officials reviewed a summary of an investigation that it began last fall.

Wessler President Brent Siebenthal said the study, which cost the community $12,400, helped isolate areas where clean water is entering the system. The investigation included 60 hours of smoke testing and 20 hours of manhole inspections. The Indianapolis-based firm also conducted wet-weather inspections at certain locations.
