What's That Noise? Government Money @ Work?

The construction noise of recent days is the digging and installation of effluent pipe between the new sewer treatment plant and the Waste Management refuse disposal site up Canyon Way. Work at this date has progressed adjacent to Peri Ranch Road to about half way across the LCC/Rainbow Bend borderline.

Work is being done utilizing a grant from the federal Economic Stimulus Act under the supervision of the Canyon General Improvement District and will cost about $3 million. Effluent will be bought by Waste Management on a per/gallon basis. There is no "out of pocket" expense to the community in this project therfore no increase in rates is contemplated. Completion is scheduled for mid-summer. However, as the work progresses up Canyon Way, noise will dissipate considerably.
