Dispute continues over sewer projects in Trumbull

Trumbull sewer dispute continues

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The dispute over two sewer projects in Trumbull County continues.

The excavator, Marrucci and Gaffney, sent a letter to the Trumbull County Engineer stating that there are no problems with the Kinsman and Little Squaw Creek sanitary sewer projects.

On Wednesday, engineer Randy Smith presented videos taken inside the sewers that they said prove there are flaws in the work that was done. The county said the contractor damaged several gas lines in Vienna while doing work, and they want the company to pay for the damages.

“Well, those are things that you usually see after years of the pipe being in the ground, then you get leaks. We have leaks before we actually finish the project. And that is not a good thing,” Trumbull County Commissioner Frank Fuda said.

Marrucci and Gaffney claim the commissioners are being misled and that the county is attempting to create issues where none exist. In their letter, they write that they will sue the county if what they call a “false media campaign” does not stop.
