A public meeting was held at Skaith Elementary concerning the planned Eastside Sewer Improvement Project.
The project calls for upgrading the Faraon Street pump station as well as constructing a new pump station near Candy Creek.
The Candy Creek pump station would replace the current Easton Road pump station which is currently under capacity.
"As we do these construction projects we want to make sure that we don't have any detrimental or huge impacts on the environment," said project manager Bill Nash. "That's why we send people out and look at the streams, we look at the wetlands, we look at threatening endangered species, air quality, any cultural resource sites. We don't want to hace any detrimental impacts on those things."
Others, though, are not so sure.
"I believe that this is just going to be a reoccuring of the problems that they have had," said geophysicist Frank Hoeffner. "I believe that the systems that they have are a proven failure. It's just going to be more of the same."
Construction of the Eastside Sewer Project is expected to be complete by the end of 2014.
