The Gravois Arm Sewer District is receiving funding for a preliminary engineering report from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources for the phase four sewer project. The project will connect three areas and sixty questionnaires were recently sent out to the areas with the most potential in order to gauge interest in the project. An additional sixty questionnaires are scheduled to be sent out and a map is being drawn up identifying those who are interested. The sewer district’s board of trustees will soon sit down with the engineers to plan the location of the next phase. The district’s manager is also reporting the sewer flow over the Fourth of July weekend was the heaviest the district has ever experienced without major shower activity. The district processed 200 thousand gallons of sludge on Saturday and nearly 172 thousand gallons on Sunday. Compare that with 42 thousand gallons of sludge hauled for the month of June. Due to the record flow, the district may have to budget higher next year in order to cover the cost of hauling.
