Evansville Breaks Ground on Phase One of Sewer Upgrades

City of Evansville Seal

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility is set to break ground on the first phase of the Renew Evansville construction project.

It follows years of negotiations between the city and the EPA over mandated upgrades to the city’s infrastructure.

The first phase includes installation of a large sewer pipe along Bee Slough and Veterans Memorial Parkway.

That will help prevent overflowing of sewer water.

A public meeting to discuss this first phase is set for 5:00 p.m. on Monday at Central Library.

Following the presentation, an open house will continue until 7:00.

Renew Evansville is described as the largest capital improvement project in the city’s history, with a price tag of nearly $730 million.
