Reductions in river flows have resulted in lower flows through the Jamestown sanitary sewer and a reduced tension among city officials, according to Reed Schwartzkopf, city engineer.

well written article – not once did they blame sump pump discharges for the high flows into the sewer system (as the city has much of the summer). Amazing, decrease the river flow 60% and you decrease the amount pumped by the lift stations near the river 60%. Curious solution the city has to the water infiltration problem though, just increase pumping capacity. Typical govt solution, throw money at a problem and treat a symptom, rather than the root cause of the problem.

It’s nice to see that the citizens of Jamestown are no longer being blamed for the problem.
