City Utilities 3RPORT Tunnel Works Program
The Tunnel Works Program represents a major part of Fort Wayne's efforts to implement the 2008 Long-Term Control Plan and associated Consent Decree with the US Environmental Protection Agency. The premier project - the deep rock tunnel - will be constructed in the bedrock deep below the city. The tunnel will collect and transport sewage from the combined sewer system to the sewage treatment plant. This sewage would otherwise discharge (overflow) into the rivers when it rains.
For more information, please refer to the project’s website at http://fortwaynetunnel.org . If you have specific questions about the project, please contact Kelly Bajic (427-2614) or T.J. Short (427-2740).
