One of the main sewer lines on the southeast side of Taylorville was built in the 1970’s. The Taylorville Sanitary District is now looking at replacing that aging line.

 

Bob Willard is the Plant Manager for the Taylorville Sanitary District. He describes the path the line takes through Taylorville and says the line’s operating life is coming to an end.

 

 

Willard says the district has already repaired the line multiple times. There are multiple options currently on the table for replacing the line. Jeff Large is a Project Manager with Crawford, Murphy and Tilly. He says there are multiple paths the new line could take with a price range between $1 million and $1.4 million.

 

 

Large says it is still very early in the process of what will be done to replace the aging sewer line.

 

 

Large says the project could be put out for bids sometime early in the summer of 2018.
