LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The finishing touches are being put on the Greenbush Combined Sewer Overflow underground storage tank, and WLFI was given an opportunity to view inside of the tank.

The four point two million gallon tank is roughly the size of an NFL football field, and will be used to capture untreated sewage during heavy rain events.

Construction on the tank began in October 2017.

Brad Talley, Director of Lafayette renew said the tank is an effort to further protect our community and environment.

“We want the people to be able to enjoy the river, we want to protect the environment, just be a good environmental stewards for the community,” said Talley.

Talley said the City of Lafayette plans to continue all operations and projects with a focus on environmental responsibility and natural resource protection.
