The DigIndy Tunnel System is a network of tunnels bored into the bedrock 250 feet below the City of Indianapolis. The 28-mile long system will collect combined sewer overflows (CSO) into local waterways by 97% in compliance with the U.S. EPA Consent Decree. Overall, the $2B system-wide investment will dramatically improve water quality in the City’s urban streams and rivers.
