Project and Website Overview
Project Need, Narrative and Details
The primary need to be addressed by this project is the lack of reliable and economical public wastewater collection services available to the South County area which is currently served by onsite septic systems. In addition, providing wastewater treatment services to the existing sewered areas owned by the South County Sewer and Water Authority (Authority) will be accomplished. The un-sewered areas contain many small lots with inadequate area for proper onsite treatment. The lake areas have both small lots and high groundwater making onsite treatment even more difficult.
