Ironton sewer work slated to continue this week
Despite the heavy rain over the weekend, work on Ironton’s sewer system will continue this week.
Crews plan to re-line the sewer in several areas in Ironton over the next few days.
In addition to the sewer lining, workers will continue manhole rehabilitation between Ellison Street and Orchard Street in North Ironton and sewer cleaning on Third Street between Walnut Street and Mastin Avenue.
In areas where the sewer is being re-lined, residents may experience an odor.
To dissipate the smell, pouring water into the lowest drain of the house may help. Residents can also place a damp towel over the opening of the drain and open their windows.
The sewer project schedule for this week is as follows:
North Ironton between Ellison Street and Orchard Street.
Third Street alley between Walnut Street and Mastin Avenue.
First Street, Carl Drive, Charles Street, David Avenue, Ora Richey Road
Wilson Road, Woodlawn Drive, Jefferson Street from Third Street to Fourth Street, Madison Street from Third Street to Fifth Street, Seventh Street from Quincy Street to Chestnut Street, Eighth Street alley from Pleasant Street to Ashtabula Street, 10th Street from Madison Street to Mulberry Street, 10th Street alley from Jefferson Street to Mulberry Street, 10th Street alley from Pleasant Street to Vine Street.
