The city of Chattanooga is moving forward with plans to repair its aging sewer system.

City leaders will use a $33 million state loan to address sewer and water runoff problems.

The projects include an overhaul of the East Brainerd sewer basin, which will receive a new pump station as well as a new lining throughout the area's sewer system.

Longstanding problems led to a lawsuit from the state's clean water network.
