Vidalia Makes Long-Range Water/Sewer Plans
Wednesday, 04 March 2009

March 4--  The Vidalia city council got a look Wednesday at long-range plans to improve the city's water and sewer system over the next 15 to 20 years.

City consuling engineer Carl Hofstadter estimates the cost at about $20 million.  He recommended installation of a 12-inch water line around the city's permeter to encourage future growth and to provide adequate water pressure for fire protection.

Hofstadter also identifed 15 to 20 sewer lines which need work and he recommended eliminating five of the city's pumping stations.

Vidalia's last master water and sewer plan was done in 1990 and been completed, according to Hofstadter.  The city uses special purpose local option sales tax money to pay for the projects.
