Town plans for Valley Road sewer project

Print Article

TOWN OF BELOIT - Town of Beloit officials are in the process of planning for a potential paving and sewer installation project on Valley Road.

Joe Rose, director of public works, said roads in that area are deteriorating. He said the town has adopted a policy that if a road is in need of repair, and if it doesn't have sewer and is surrounded by sewer service areas, the town will install sewer lines.

Rose said it saves costs and is better for the environment to do sewer line installation and road pavement replacement at the same time. Many times a road has to be dug up to install a sewer line.

This project would affect 25 homes that could then hook up to sewer service if the residents so choose. Those residents would have to pay a sewer hookup fee. Rose said the neighborhood also doesn't have water utilities yet, so the town also would extend water lines to the properties.

"They're the only ones in that area who don't have sewer. It's an island of septic systems," Rose said.

The town is in the preliminary stages of planning for the Valley Road project. Officials hosted an informational meeting about the project on Monday, and in the coming weeks the Town of Beloit Board of Supervisors will review the project.

Rose said the project was budgeted to occur this year, but the timeline will depend on how quickly the approval and bidding process moves.

He said the town has been active in its approach to eliminating the few remaining septic islands within the municipality.

"There's a few we are getting taken care of so we can serve our residents in the best way possible," Rose said.
