Body
PREAMBLE

During routine maintenance City Engineering discovered a sanitary sewer failure at the intersection of Blair, Williamson and John Nolen Drive. At this location an 8” cast iron sanitary main has partially collapsed. This main serves the area south of the Railroad tracks east of Blair along Williamson and West of Blount Street.
