EDWARDSBURG, Mich. — A sewer problem more than a year old was resolved Wednesday night when Ontwa Township officials unanimously agreed to hire a firm to put a liner in a portion of its sewer pipe system near Elkhart’s airport on C.R. 6.

The board agreed to pay Insituform of Indianapolis $36,168 to place the liner in 528 feet of sewer pipe where it flows into the Elkhart municipal sewer system at Moose Trail near the airport. The work will be done as soon as the Elkhart system is notified, according to Tom Deneau of Wightman and Associates Inc. of Benton Harbor.

Wightman is looking into a hydrogen sulfide odor problem in the sewer pipe system in the Edwardsburg area. It is currently being treated with a chemical to reduce the odor, which smells like rotten eggs. This has been going on since April 2012. Deneau said there are “spikes” in the odor.

“We don’t understand the spike issue,” Deneau said. “It needs to be resolved. I suggest we communicate with the City of Elkhart.”

The next township meeting is 7 p.m. June 10 at the Ontwa Township Hall, 26225 U.S. 12.
