Buckland sewer project continues

The Village of Buckland is in the beginning of installing sewer lines.

The Village Council met Thursday to discuss a letter being sent to residents concerning the new line.

The village received approximately $1.5 million in grants, plus another $1 million grant to help low-income property owners cut into the new system.

A meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at the Buckland Community Center to discuss how low-income families can use the grant. Residents must apply to be considered for the grant.

The new sewer system will be a conventional gravity-flow that will drain into a pump station at the south end of the village.

The village purchased 15 acres of land in December of 2012.  Treatment will be through an aerated lagoon system.

According to the letter, each resident will be responsible for making their connection to the system, which must be done no later than June 30, 2015.
