Construction work near Cut in the Hill

COVINGTON (FOX 19) -- Northern Kentucky Sanitation Dis. 1 is constructing a storm water easement along 71/75 at the cut in the hill.

The work is help the drainage of the combined storm water drainage system. The reforestation and terrace project will keep rain water from rushing down the hill and causing the combined storm drains to back up. The idea is the water will move slowly and absorb into the new terrain.

The combined storm drain is rain water and sewage. So when it rains heavily sewage backs up and gets into the Ohio and tributaries.

This is a green project and is paid for by federal stimulus dollars.

It should be complete by the end of 2010.
