Wastewater System Improvements

Wastewater Treatment System Expansion
A project had been started to improve the wastewater treatment system and replace the Sterling Court Wastewater Lift Station.  The entire project will be funded using a 20-year 0% interest loan from the Nebraska Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).  By state law, the loan must be repaid by the residents via service fees, not property taxes.  It is estimated that the monthly charge per resident with be $20.00 to $25.00.

Studies and Specifications

Project construction is expected to start in Summer 2021 with completion in early 2023.

Wastewater Treatment System Expansion
The current wastewater treatment system is undersized and needs to be upgraded to ensure we comply with all state and federal water standards.  This project will significantly expand the wastewater treatment system and will provide sufficient capacity to meet the future needs of the district.

In addition, this project will greatly improve the maintainability and reliability of the facility by providing improved system monitoring and automated removal of solid non-degradable waste, reducing the damage to mechanical systems.

Estimated Cost: $1.2 million

Project Progress – July 2022

Sterling Court Lift Station Replacement
The Sterling Court Lift Station needs to be replaced to ensure a catastrophic failure does not occur which could damage residents’ homes.  This project will completely replace the current lift station with much newer technology with improved reliability.

Estimated Cost: $175,000

2022 Street Overlay

The SID has contracted with Ehrhart Griffin and Associates to analyze all of the roads within the district. As suspected, there were significant issues found throughout the district. To fully repair and overlay the districts roads would cost approximately $4.5 million. To repair the districts roads would cost approximately $2.5 million. All estimates are based on August 2021 estimates.

Starting in Sept 2021 the SID Board will consider all of the various options and decide the way ahead. Ideally work on the districts roads would begin in Spring 2022.
