Millen Sewer improvements

A decade ago, the city of Millen's sewer system was in dire need of repair, with the majority of its collection lines deteriorated to the point of needing to be replaced or slip-lined. The community made addressing its infrastructure a major focus in its 2004 comprehensive plan and has maintained that emphasis in subsequent updates in 2009 and 2012. This focus on fixing what it has rather than adding new infrastructure has paid dividends for Millen. In 2012, it was awarded more than $450,000 in CDBD funds for sewer line repair or replacement. This work was accomplished on time and under budget, allowing Millen to perform additional work on other areas. Millen has now upgraded a significant portion of its sewer system, improving the quality of the community for its current and future residents.
