Ailing Edwardsville sewer lines to be addressed

The city of Edwardsville will take steps to fix leaks in its older neighborhood’s sewer system and hopefully prevent future backups.

In July, the city hired Sheppard, Morgan and Schwaab (SMS) Inc. to complete smoke testing in areas that experienced sanitary sewer backups during the 2009 Memorial Day storm and identify sources of storm water infiltration and inflow into the sanitary sewer system.

Public Works Director Tim Harr said SMS has now completed the smoke testing in these areas and identified 51 homes and 38 points where storm water infiltration and inflow were exhibited.
