Sewer Expansion Work Begins in Stephens County
Gregg Hibbard, general superintendent/partner with the Legacy Water Group, the contractors on the job.
The Toccoa-Stephens County Veterans Parkway water & sanitary sewer collection system expansion project is underway. The rights-of-ways have been staked and they are being cleared. This project calls for 4,300 LF of 8” gravity sewer, 11,000 LF of 6” force main, 14,200 LF 8” water, and a 200-gpm lift station. It extends along Veterans Parkway from GA106 east to Memorial Drive. This $3.5M project is being funded by grants from the Economic Development Administration, the Appalachian Regional Commission, and city and county SPLOST dollars. It is expected to be completed by July 2017.
The SCDA is responsible for the recruitment of new businesses including industrial, manufacturing, distribution, corporate and regional headquarters and customer service centers. It also provides support and assistance with all other types of economic development projects.
The SCDA also works with existing businesses and industries to ensure their continued success. While recruitment of new industry is a significant function, aiding in existing industry expansion and retention is just as significant. About 80 percent of all new jobs in Georgia come as a result of existing industry expansion.
