Sewer project shakes Chartres Street, but is it damaging homes?, by Danielle Grady (The Collected Works of Tom May)
NEW ALBANY — A couple of New Albany residents say that a city sewer project is damaging their homes, but the contractor says that unrelated forces are causing the issues.
Tony Nava lives on Chartres Street, which is intersected by a city sewer project that involves boring 20 to 25 feet into the ground to install a new system. The work, which started in January, has been sending vibrations throughout the neighborhood, including to Paula Bader’s house.
“I feel like I’m in a war zone,” said Bader.
The bricks of Nava’s chimney have loosened and cracks have formed in his ceiling and walls.
“The thing was, it wasn’t like that before construction,” said Nava at Tuesday’s New Albany Board of Public Works & Safety meeting.
