How’s that for a catchy headline?
You may know there is a huge and very important sewer pipe running under Coxwell Avenue. It was built in the 1950s and according to this National Post story, it carries a third of the city’s waste water to the Ashbridge’s Bay treatment plant. The crack was found just north of O’Connor Drive in early December. Building a new diversion line to allow for the repairs to the Coxwell trunk could take 18 months and only then, will the city know whether the old pipe can be saved.
Having said all that, DECA (o.k. me) has been contacted by two graduate students in Environmental Studies at York University. They are working on a research paper looking at better understanding this issue. They want to do phone interviews with people who have an interest or insight into the Coxwell Sanitary Trunk Sewer.
Is that you? Or someone you know? Do you have insight into the Coxwell trunk line?
Please send me a note and I’ll pass along more information about their project to you.
