(2/25/19) Mayor Jamie Mayo announced today at the Monroe city briefing that changes are coming to an old sewer line that resides on Grand St., but it doesn’t involve the current sewer line.
The current line is getting to the end of its usable life and needs repairs, but the current pipe is connected to the levee that parallels Grand St.. Instead of doing repairs, city engineers talked with officials running the flood wall project, scheduled in the Fall of this year, to agree to build a new line.
This new line will stretch from Pargoud Dr. eastward to the intersection of Price St. and Hippolyte Ave.
There will be construction from multiple projects going on in this area, but residents shouldn’t expect too many impacts. Engineers will fix/clean any damage/mess that is caused by the projects.
Quality of sewer lines shouldn’t change, and residents shouldn’t expected to pay for this project, as it is already funded. It is awaiting approval from City Council for financial bids.
