Massive digging is set to begin soon under Alexandria, Virginia, now that preferred options have been identified for tunnels meant to reduce the amount of raw sewage flowing into the Potomac River and its tributaries.

The environmental assessment released last week recommends digging a 19-foot diameter tunnel more than 10,000 feet long about 100 feet beneath Church Street and the Potomac River, just off the Old Town waterfront, that would connect to storage tanks at Robinson Terminal North and Royal Street.

The city would also build a diversion sewer along Hooffs Run with a storage tank bear Duke Street and S. Peyton Street.
