The environmental protection agency is requiring the city of Dothan to make massive improvements to its sewer system.
The project has 3-phases. They are currently wrapping up phase 1 and entering phase 2.
This next phase will be spent testing hundreds of miles of sewer pipes. Then, making a plan to fix the problems.
Engineers estimate the entire project will cost at least 100-million dollars over the next decade.
The city must also pass a fats, oils and grease ordinance later this year. It requires restaurants to have grease traps and also to pump grease from the traps on a regular basis.
