CADIZ – The Village of Cadiz is currently working to rehabilitate a sewer trunk line constructed in 1939.

The proposed North Trunk Line project will rehabilitate or replace the existing sewer transmission line as conditions warrant. No significant upgrade has been made to the wastewater system since its original construction. The existing collection system is comprised of vitrified clay pipe and consists of approximately 197,684 feet of 4-to-15-inch diameter gravity sewers, 22,069 feet of 1 1/2-inch, 2-inch, 4-inch and 6-inch diameter force main, 794 manholes, 14 cleanouts and nine pumping stations.

About 15 people took part in an informational meeting Sept. 6 on the Cadiz North Trunk Line project. Many of the attendants were property owners whose signatures were needed on access agreements and officials gave details of the estimated $2.5 million project that could hopefully start later this year. A second session is set for Sept. 18 at 6 p.m., after which officials would go door to door to seek signatures. Looking at some of the maps are, from left, Rudy Puskarich, Roy Smith, Jon Kirkland, George Christian, Dennis Kinsey and Village Water-Wastewater Superintendent Tom Carter.
