Corps protects town’s sanitary system
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District is partnering with the Town of Worthington to reclaim an eroded bank along a 1,400-foot stretch of the West Fork River. The more than $880,000 project is designed to protect a sanitary sewer line that runs along the riverbank. The project included installing R5 rip rap at the toe and R3 rip rap on the bank to help stop the erosion and protect the sewer line.
