FAYETTEVILLE – Plans moved forward
today for several Fayette County communities to receive sewer lines.
Terradon Engineering and Construction
group unveiled its plans to the Fayette County Commission this morning.
The plans are to construct sewer lines
in the Ames Heights, Turkey Creek, and Hopewell areas around Anstead.
These areas are currently without
sanitary sewer lines. The plans could involve the Anstead sewer plant being
expanded or upgraded in order to accept the increased flow.
“(We are) in the preliminary study
portion of this, and we'll take it to the funding agencies and hopefully move
on from there into final construction, says Will Thornton of Terradon Corp.
Until construction starts, Thornton
says that’s a ways away. “I'd hope it'd be sooner than later, but realistically
probably about three years.”
The next step is receiving funding and
getting the plans added to the priority list by the state.
