The 28-mile tunnel being dug below Indy’s streets will carry millions of gallons of raw sewage and wastewater away from the city next year, ending the century of dumping into the polluted White River.  Although the DigIndy Tunnel’s purpose and presentation may be unpleasant, the end of wastewater runoff and overflowing drains has the city excited.

“This is the next step in what will be a transformative project for our infrastructure, for the White River, and transformative for the city as a whole,” said Indy’s Deputy Mayor Jeff Bennett. “I just can’t overstate the potential of DigIndy.”
