Seeley Lake Sewer Board Studies Sewer Needs

Representatives from the Seeley Lake Sewer Board met with Ann Mary Dussault and other county officials, including Commissioner Billy Carey, to discuss findings and procedures for making a Preliminary Engineering Study of the sewer needs of Seeley Lake. This study is a preliminary needs and information study, not a binding action.

"County officials were very cooperative," sated Glen Morin. "They had many answers and are willing to work with us to obtain a Preliminary Engineering Study for our area."

The Board intends to continue its ground water monitoring but, based on the informal survey of the sewer district voters showing that one half wanted a sewer now and the majority of the rest wanted a sewer if pollution was shown, the Board was prompted to take an affirmative action of study. A large majority indicated a willingness to pay a small fee to fund the study and operations of the Sewer District.

The Sewer Board meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. in the conference room at Pyramid Mountain Lumber.
