The HOT story…

On Wednesday, August 30, 2017, a section of roadway on the corner of Main Street and Hancock in downtown Louisville caved-in due to a collapsed sewer pipe. The collapse was the result of a failing, 70-year old, 102-inch concrete sewer pipe that carries approximately one-third of the wastewater flow generated in Louisville Metro. As such, repairing this piece of infrastructure was vital to the health and environmental safety of our community.


Be sure to join us at 11:30am for an opportunity to network before the panel begins promptly at noon!
