ELKHART, Ind. - Elkhart took its first step in a mandated sewer overflow project upgrade.
City leaders broke ground for the CSO 6 & 7 project in Elkhart.

The project will prevent millions of gallons of untreated wastewater from entering the Elkhart River every year.

It's expected the project will reduce sewer overflow from 45 times a year to six times a year.

It will also eliminate 8.4 million gallons of sewage overflow every year.

The project costs $8.2 million but the city received financing through a state loan program.
