Leland preparing sewer system for rapid growth

READ MORE:
LELAND -- The rapidly growing town of Leland is trying to make sure it can keep up with rapidly increasing sewer demand. A meeting will be held Thursday night outlining ways to do that. Town officials say if changes aren't made to the sewer system it won't be able to handle the expected influx of people to the area. Right now there are about 3,000 customers hooked up to the system and about 1,000 more are expected within the next three years. The town's sewer study committee has suggested a number of options to make sure the sewer system doesn't become a problem. One is to allow for private wastewater treatment centers, another- to expand the north east treatment plant, or to upgrade the town's force main system. The estimated cost of the last option is about $34 million. Town officials will discuss the options Thursday night at seven at town hall off Village Road in Leland. The public is welcome to attend.
