A Dust Up Over Pipe Repair Work

There’s been some discord between Mulberry city administrators and the company hired to work on the city’s sewer repair project. The problem: a huge communication gap amongst the parties involved which needed a reset to continue the $4.2 million project to eliminate stormwater intrusion in the city’s wastewater system.

Problems began when crews severed sewer lines to two houses while working on lines along Northeast First Avenue. The company had been working without incident since April repairing sewer lines throughout the city. But when work began moving to Northeast First Avenue, lines began backing up into the local school and residential water and sewer lines began breaking.

Both sides are working toward a solution to repair the problems, which now has the project back on track.

To complicate the project, there are underground utilities that no one knew were there. The crew is also hauling in clean fill dirt to shore up two existing water lines straddling the sewer line that was initially slated for water-intrusion repairs.
