Lake Area Sewage Project Discussed

On Tuesday evening, at the Yankton County Building, County Commissioner Dan Klimisch held a listening session to get feedback from lake area residents.

The issue addressed was if the county should invest in sewage service in areas like Timberland Park, Nappa Junction, and along Deer Boulevard, which currently rely mostly on septic systems.

One of the primary items discussed is if the county should have a new study of the project done, as the latest data is several years old and outdated.

This study would cost $28,000, and would look at the feasibility and cost of installing such infrastructure.

Several lake area residents expressed their concerns, but also discussed if the Yankton City sewage lines would be best routed along Highway 52 or along 23rd Street.

The Yankton County Commission will meet on Tuesday, December 7th at 6:00 pm in the Commission Meeting Room at 321 West 3rd Street in Yankton.
