City of Springfield Awarded $6.4 Million from Department of Natural Resources

The City of Springfield will begin work soon on a new wastewater system after receiving millions from the Department of Natural Resources.

Officials say the department granted the city $6.4 million to renovate the city sewer system, including a new type of pipe-lining.

The lining is expected to reduce the amount of groundwater and stormwater from getting into the systems pipes, as well as lower overflow and improve the peak performance of the system.

Some of the funding came from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

The project is expected to be completed by March of 2025.
