77 manholes, located mainly south of Fayette Avenue, were lined recently with an epoxy that adds to the structural integrity and reduces the amount of street water that runs into the lines from the manholes. This manhole is about to be sprayed with the epoxy, while water currently leaks down through the bricks. The work is part of an ongoing effort to limit excess water from entering the sewer system, which puts a strain on the sewer treatment plant, and lowers the amount of gas that comes out of the sewer through the manholes.
