WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Borough of Waynesboro is progressing on its $75,000 project to mitigate flood problems on the south end of town.

The project, which began this fall, included removing three pipes east of Church Street, clearing debris in the area and stabilizing banks along the stormwater outfall.

At a meeting of the Waynesboro Borough Council Wednesday, Dennis Benshoff, superintendent of the Waynesboro Maintenance Department, said the last pipe was placed Wednesday.

In a prior interview, Kevin Grubbs, head of engineering for the Borough of Waynesboro said three 48-inch pipes were installed under South Church Street when it was widened in 1999 and created a funnel effect and backup. The result was reduced flow capacity and deluged homes and yards.

Grubbs said the project is not finished and there is still work to be done on the storm sewer system along Cemetery Avenue.
