“VOSO” crowd receptive to piped sewer

An inquisitive crowd last night at South Union displayed a receptiveness to Oconee County’s foray into the southern end of the county with the first piped sewer to be strung over 13 and a half miles from Seneca to the Golden Corner Commerce Park on highway 59. As many as three times, including the end of last night’s Voice of Southern Oconee meeting, the audience applauded County Administrator Scott Moulder for what he said about a project that has come to be known as Sewer South. Moulder urged patience as it’s going to take up two years for the first customers to be connected. It’s now in the engineering stage. Although most everything about Sewer South phase one and its eight to ten million dollar estimated budget was conveyed in a positive way, there were some questions about how it’s to be funded, maintained, and whether home owners and businesses in general would be required to hook on.
