The engineers working on the sewer separation project in the downtown area appeared before the Winamac Town Board to give them an update on the project. The project is going along well and the workers were able to complete the work by the fire department in one day so the road could be open in the case of an emergency. Work is being done around the Cruisers area this week.
This is one of the phases of the Town of Winamac’s sewer separation process. The north side of town was completed last year. This portion of the project cost $5.1 million while last year’s project cost closer to $6 million. The Town was able to secure $3.3 million in grant money for the current phase of the project.
This current phase will last through the late fall.
