Lane T. Young Executive Director of Evansville Water and Sewer Utility
December 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In addition to leading the Utility’s overall operations, Young heads two long-term plans to address our City’s aging water and sewer systems:
- Refresh Evansville replaces aging water mains and supporting infrastructure. EWSU maintains 1,000 miles of water lines, 600 miles of which are cast iron pipes with an average age of over 90 years. These are now at or past their life expectancy.
- Renew Evansville includes approximately 200 utility projects slated through 2040. Projects will upgrade existing sewer infrastructure, address combined sewer overflows, and provide environmentally sustainable solutions for utility operations.
