Sewer project one step closer

Camp Verde Sanitary District Chairperson Suzy Burnside and husband Bob were seen Monday placing the signs in Fort River Caves at 200-foot intervals.

Now begins the official protest period that runs through mid November, Burnside said.

After years of delays, the current sewer board is pushing the sewer line and plant expansion project forward. Rural Development will provide a 25-year loan of $4,641,500 at 4.5 percent interest and a grant of $1,447,500.

More than 300 business and residential users will benefit from the additional sewer lines including residents in Reddell Ranch Acres and Fort River Caves Subdivisions and the existing businesses at the Interstate 17 and Arizona 260 interchange.

The project will be paid back with special assessments levied against benefiting properties in the areas to be served. The plant along East Arizona 260 will be expanded to .65 million gallons per day and will include a new office for the district.
