HUMBOLDT — City Administrator Cole Herder received authority Monday night to give Humboldt’s sewer system a more extensive upgrade.

As is, many mains are being lined with a material to make them more efficient. During the project, workers discovered a substantial portion of mains already had been lined with an impervious material, in 1999, that had  brought them to snuff. The result was a savings of $262,000 within a project of a little over $5 million.

With that mind, engineers told Herder the sewer system could be made much better if about $500,000 — exact numbers still are being calculated — were added to the $262,000 savings.
