Sewer, drainage upgraded
There are a couple of projects going on around the city of Ruston. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is working to rehabilitate the drainage system in the area of City Hall. City engineer Richard Aillet said the installation of new drainage pipes will encompass Georgia Avenue from Monroe to Trenton streets, and then turn north on Trenton Street and go through Carolina Avenue. Aillet said the improvements will reduce flooding in the area when it rains.
