Eleventh-hour changes in the design of a rural sewer collection to service customers in the the outlying areas of Monmouth and Roe Acres, Bobo, Pleasant Mills and Arcadia Village have pushed the timeline for the project back slightly.
Project engineer Ben Adams of Commonwealth Construction reported to a slimmed-down Adams County Regional Sewer District board of directors on Thursday evening that the changes — some of which he described as "fairly radical" as they pertain to the Pleasant Mills area — have set the project back approximately one month.
The county's first rural sewer project is designed to serve approximately 265 Adams County households. The estimated cost of the project has been set at $4.5 million.
