Mayor Winnecke Tours Bee Slough

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke toured Bee Slough, along with Evansville Water & Sewer Utility Executive Director Allen Mounts.

Mounts gave the mayor an update on the largest capital improvement project in the city's history.

The project will transform Bee Slough into the largest wetland wastewater treatment system in the country.

It's the first of seven EPA mandated efforts to curb combined sewer overflows. 

The seven-part project is expected to take 13 years to complete.
