The new partnership has come up with a plan to help fix the problem.<br /><br />Springfield has an aging sewer system and when it rains all the stormwater goes into the same pipeline as the city&#39;s sanitary waste. The city has increased in size but the pipeline hasn&#39;t, and so there&#39;s an overflow of raw sewage.<br /> Tue, 15 Oct 2013 23:29:16 +0000 Wayne Baker 40665 at http://wyso.org Wittenberg Class Helps Study Stormwater Runoff Problem In Springfield Wittenberg Hosting Peace, World History Conference http://wyso.org/post/wittenberg-hosting-peace-world-history-conference <p>This weekend, Springfield&#39;s Wittenberg University will be the site for the fourth annual Conflict and Peace in World History Conference.
