Cameras to go under Corinth streets

By The Associated Press

CORINTH — Cameras are set to go under the streets of Corinth.

The WTVA TV reports the cameras will be used to track leaks or other problems as part of a major sewer system upgrade.

Work has already begun on the multi-million dollar project.

Officials say they usually treat 4.6 million gallons of sewer water daily, but on a rainy day, that amount can surge to 15 million gallons.

Mayor Tommy Irwin says the end result becomes a violation of the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality permit.

The project will be paid for with money earned from customer sewer fees.
