Akron Asks EPA to Allow Sewage Overflows
The city of Akron, Ohio, has asked the EPA if it will allow sewage from an underground storage tunnel to flow into the Cuyahoga River watershed.
If approved, the city will save around $100 million. That money would go towards the construction of a required treatment facility.
The facility would be placed at the end of a 6,200-foot-long, 27- foot-high tunnel, capable of holding 25 million gallons of sewage.
