As Huntington city utility employees work on flushing the sewer line at the intersection of Engle and Sunnydale on Monday, Feb. 10, Gary Hunt (left) and Brian Sills confer with a team waiting to use cameras to inspect the line to make sure it is in good working order. Superintendent of City Utilities Pat Maher says the city began the project in 2018 to “vactor” sewer lines throughout the city. He said the northwest and northeast quadrants of Huntington have been completed, and now crews are moving throughout the southwest portion of the city.
