Drainfield System Evaluation: 2024

Report Background

Wednesday, December 27, Midwest Sewer Services performed four excavations to evaluate soil conditions at the drainfield. Two of these excavations were conducted on active drain cells and two on resting drain cells. Bolton & Menk presented a report to Council on April 11 outlining the findings and providing recommendations for repairs and cost estimates. 

Report Summary

The drainfield portion of the system appears to be in good condition with substantial life remaining. Many of the manholes, however, have corroded over the last 40 years and are due for replacement. The inspection ports have also deteriorated and should be replaced. 

The full report is available below.
