Anticipated Maintenance of Traffic

Dollar Value of Project


Benefits to Akron Upon Completion of Work

Akron Sewer Maintenance Division operates and maintains about 850 miles of sanitary and combination sewers. The benefit of this project is to maintain the City's existing infrastructure and extend its useful service life, and therefore, deferring the need for the high costs associated with replacement.
