Carterville, Mo. making repairs to rotting manholes in sewer system


The city of Carterville, Missouri is doing necessary repairs to some rotting manholes in the community's sanitary sewer system.

Crews are using a new sort of sealing method that allows them to repair manholes instead of having to dig them up and replace them.

They say this system minimizes disruption to the street and neighborhood and is simpler for workers.

"We'd have to bypass pump over a mile to control the sewage flow - with this method we're able to not interrupt any service whatsoever - it's a permanent method of repair," says Mike Smith, the Carterville Public Works Director.

Smith says the repairs should last a lifetime.
