Fort Oglethorpe eyes sewer service for 'potential-for-growth' area
FORT OGLETHORPE, GA (Times Free Press) -
When three new Fort Oglethorpe City Council members take office in
January, one thing they'll decide is whether to use sales tax revenue to
expand sewer service to the north end of Mack Smith Road.
"It's a potential-for-growth area right close to the interstate," city Public Works Director Phil Parker said.
The proposed Mack Smith Road interceptor sewer project would provide
about 6,000 feet of large-diameter, gravity-fed sewer pipe that could
eliminate five small sewage pumping stations, including ones at Green
Acres Mobile Homes Park and the Holiday Trav-L-Park, a campground for
recreational vehicles, said Philip Schofield, a civil engineer with CTI
Engineers Inc. in Chattanooga. He's drawn up preliminary plans for the
"They've been trying to get sewer up there for a long time," Schofield said.
