Construction of phase one of the Sunrise Beach wastewater treatment system is set to begin Dec. 9. The board of trustees finished up financial paperwork with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and pre-construction details at a special meeting Nov. 25. In addition to collection pipe, phase one will include an extended-aeration treatment plant with a capacity of 50,000 gallons per day and potential for future expansion. The plans for phase one have a total scope of $2.5 million with $1,820,475 roughly 75 percent coming from a DNR grant. A $750,000 low interest loan from the state revolving fund rounds out the financing package.
