Officials inspected the sewer immediately upstream on Second Avenue between Carmody Boulevard and Water Street, and the pipe showed signs of severe deterioration. An additional 590 feet of pipe need to be replaced, in a third project. The project is expected to take one month, weather permitting, according to Scott Tadych, city public works and utilities director. He said the additional replacement will cost about $800,000.

The repair of the first two sections will cost approximately $1.6 million, and $2 million was authorized initially for the project.
