Design work on the replacement sewage treatment plant for the Ridgeland Subdivision was completed in October of 2019. The project revolves around the construction of a new extended aeration precast concrete sewage treatment plant, rated for 20,000 gallon per day of sewage. The plant will be built adjacent to the existing outdated plant, within that same property parcel. The estimated cost of the project is around $1.5 million dollars. The District is working on securing funding and preparing the project for bidding.
