Shreveport is looking for ways to fix nasty sewerage problem

Shreveport's nasty problem with sewerage overflows has city leaders looking for ways to fix it and avoid more fines from the federal government.  According to sources, the Department of Justice and the city have been engaged in talks to figure out how much time and money will be needed to make the much needed repairs. One resource that could be tapped is the city's water customer. And if that's the case, customers could see their water bill going up in the near future to offset the cost of repairs.  The Department of Justice is likely to come down on the city with a strict mandate, and order some major repairs to the system to bring Shreveport into compliance with EPA standards.  This project is expected to cost 200 to 300 million dollars.
