A unitary draining system has been selected – a single sewer pipe for wastewater and streaming water – and the whole drainage network will be gravitational in spite of an adverse topology (quite plain relief).

New sewer pipes will be set up in the following streets:

Ourthe right-bank:   Ourthe left-bank:  
rue des Ecoles: 1100 m Church bathing zone : 250 m
rue du Levant: 1100 m rue du Batty: 300 m
rue Haute: 700 m rue Emile Parfonry: 350 m
rue de la Jonction: 500 m route de Marche: 700 m
rue Rouge-Croix: 500 m rue des Sarts: 150 m
rue Saint-Roch 550 m rue Simon: 450 m
rue de la Vallée: 600 m chemin de Bondezaie: 350 m
rue Neuve: 200 m rue du Parc: 200 m
rue des Fonzays: 700 m    
rue de la Gare: 100 m    

The installation of wastewater drains tanks rounds off the project. Those drains contain all the outlets that drive wastewater to the sewage treatment plant.

The drain project makes provision of the construction of two discharge chambers as well as the installation of 2 350 mct gravitational drains.
