Rural sewer questions fielded by board

    Members of the Adams County Regional Sewer District’s board of trustees, with their attorney and project engineer absent, were forced to talk in generalities instead of specifics Thursday evening when explaining some aspects of the county’s first-ever rural sewer project to a handful of affected homeowners.
    The board met at Riverside Center in Decatur for its regular monthly meeting, with several concerned citizens in attendance.
    Some of those citizens, who are among the approximately 225 rural homeowners who will receive sewer and wastewater disposal and treatment services in the areas of Monmouth and Roe Acres, Bobo, Pleasant Mills and Arcadia Village, specifically questioned information they had received recently from the district as it pertains to the operation of sewage grinder pumps to be located on approximately 54 properties throughout the sewer district.
