Stanton Gets More Sewage Space 9/27/13
CBS 7 News
According to city manager, Michael Adams, Stanton just finished a 40-acre project. He says with the rise in population, the amount of sewage going through the system was becoming more than their permit would allow.
They have a sewage plant the matter goes through then gets fed to an irrigated field. On this field, they grow crops and farm the land. The issue was when the land started to become too saturated. The city had to renew their permit and create a second sewage irrigation farm using a grant of $350,000 and $170,000 from taxes.
Adams says even though Stanton is landlocked, the city was able to purchase the extra 40 acres adjoining the first sewage farm from a private owner. The city is currently taking bids to work the second farm.
