This is part of a proj- ect to identify our infiltra- tion and inflow problems on our sewer system. As part of this process we are having to remove the manhole covers. This leaves a drop in the asphalt to the cover. We are now trying to go behinl the work and replace asphalt on manhole tops to bring them back to grade level. We apologize for any inconvenience this brings and we will try to address the work areas as soon as possi- ble. Thank you for your patience as we are trying to make our sewage system bet- ter and more efficient for you, our customers. See HIGH SPEED,, Page 2A
