Dollar Value of Project


Benefits to Akron Upon Completion of Work

A major benefit of this project is improved water quality by controlling combined sewer overflows from existing CSO Racks 5 and 7.  Residents will also see full width pavement restoration on streets where new sewers are being installed. The storm water wetland, which will be constructed at the corner of S Case Ave and River St, will provide an additional amenity to the community.
