EDEN, N.C. -- The federal Environmental Protection Agency and the city of Eden are discussing how to eliminate wastewater overflow problems.

The Reidsville Review reported city officials and the Environmental Protection Agency met earlier this month to outline work already done to resolve the problem.

Eden officials reported in June that the city had two sewer overflows into the Dan River of more than 65,000 gallons.

City Manager Brad Corcoran says officials have explained to the federal regulators the efforts that have been taken to resolve the overflow problems.

Corcoran says a consultant has estimated it would take up to $30 million of improvements to eliminate the problem.

He hopes to get more time to complete the improvements.
