CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland is making plans to repair its aging sewer system after the city council this past week approved spending $51 million for the project.

The city says about a quarter of its sewer system is outdated and needs an upgrade.

Some of the city’s sewer lines are more than a century old, with parts first built in the 1880s.

The city plans to make upgrades at four water works plants along with replacing main water lines. Some of the money also will go toward building a new pump station and cleaning main water lines.
