WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita officials are set to start a project to examine the city’s sewage and water infrastructure.

City Council member Janet Miller said in a news conference Thursday that the project, which will look at ways to optimize the infrastructure, will begin this fall. The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1WokeRb ) reports the city requested proposals in May to identify risks and strengths in the city’s utility system, and seven companies responded.

City officials say they expect to select a firm later this month and negotiate a contract in September or October.

Miller said the first phase of the project will take one year.
