The recent collapse of a stormwater line on South Jackson Park Drive in Seymour shows the need for a separate stormwater utility, a city official said.
Randy Hamilton, director of the city’s water pollution control facility, said repairs will cost $42,240, which will come out of the existing sewer utility’s revenue.
Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. of North Vernon was awarded the project during a Board of Public Works meeting last month.
The work should take only a couple of weeks to complete, depending on the weather, and should not disrupt traffic too much, Hamilton said.
