The Muskingum County Commissioners received an update from the Director of the Sewer Department about the project that had an unexpected error in the estimate.

"We have some issue down there in the Avondale area. For the sewer line to go through there and our estimate that came back in from the engineers was an underestimate of about a half a million dollars. He came back in today because some discoveries that they found," said Muskingum County Commissioner, Jerry Lavy.

The director of the sewer department gives the commissioners quarterly updates on current and future projects.

"He gave us an update on the New Life lift station. It’s down on 22 that we’ve had some issues under funding and orders through the EPA that by 2017,  we have to have that situation corrected so we’re in the process of upgrading that station down there to come in compliance with the EPA."

Lavy says the construction of the sewer lines have not started yet.
