How was the project funded?
The LRSD project funded by a 40 year loan from USDA and grant monies.
What kind of collection system does LRSD have? How does it work?
The collection system is known as a “low pressure” sewer system. Wastewater from your home will flow to a collection tank underground (the grinder pump basin.) From there, a pump will grind and push the liquefied waste into a pressure sewer main and on to the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
Will my neighbor and I have to pay for a new grinder pump if the one we are connected to fails or wears out?
Will other people’s waste back up into our grinder pump station?
Can I landscape around the grinder?
Yes, you may, but remember there is a 10 foot easement around the grinder. If maintenance of the grinder requires the removal of, or causes damage to, landscaping within the 10 foot easement, replacement or repair costs will be at the homeowner’s expense.
