Council continues discussion about sewer district
The Basehor City Council opened discussion again about the Glenwood Estates sewer decommissioning Monday at its work session.
The council entered into an interlocal agreement in February to proceed with a plan for sewer district 3 that involved a gravity feed from the subdivision and a new lift station built near the subdivision to pump sewage to the Pinehurst lift station and into to city's wastewater treatment plant.
Council member David Breuer has been working with Leavenworth County to design a different plan that would involve a force main along 158th Street. With this second plan, $300,000 or more could be knocked off the total project cost, thus saving the residents of Glenwood Estates some money. Breuer's idea, which at first looked like it would fall to the previously-approved plan, is making some headway with the council and county.
