The Town of Morden is dealing with the drainage issue near the new East End Commercial Development.

A storm sewer is being connected to the existing line at the town of Morden sign.

Works and Operations Chair Ron Laverty says they've been wanting this done for some time.

Laverty says the project is expected to cost just over $400 000.

He says it's nice to have a project come in under budget for once.

Laverty says not only will this solve the ongoing drainage issue, but it will also collect the storm water from the developing commercial property and help with the town's beautification.
