Sparta Approves Man Hole Project In Special Called Meeting

The Sparta Board of Aldermen approved a manhole project as the city tries to lift its sewer moratorium.

Public Works Director Dillard Quick said the $60,000 project would improve overflow issues along Highway 111 near Mose Drive.

“Once the water table rises, there is a constant amount of water going into those man holes,” Quick said. “We’ve camera the whole area. There is 3,000 feet of line through there. The three man holes are bad. The pipe is good.”

City Administrator Brad Hennessee said the project will continue efforts to fulfill a consent order from the state that requires corrective action. Mayor Jerry Lowery said the project would replace the man holes to prevent water entering the sewer system.
