The city of Hagerstown this week started work on the final phase of a study examining the city's sewer collection system, city officials said.

The $40,000 study of the southwest part of city will be done in three or four weeks, Water and Sewer Department Director David Shindle said.

The work on the sewer line is being done east of Pope Avenue, west of Frederick Street, south of Wilson Boulevard and north of Oak Ridge Drive from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday, he said

The study is being done to determine if ground water or improper flow is entering the city sewer system, he said.
