We hope the following information will be informative and helpful to you. The Sanitary District is a Non-Profit Service District. We are regulated by ORS 450 and State DEQ Regulations. We are monitored by a local Board of Directors.
There are three types of systems working within the sewer system. Depending on where you live, you are connected by one of the following: pressure system, vacuum system, or gravity system. As part of the new system, we have acquired 480 acres from the Forest Service. We put in 3 lagoons which range in size from .9 to 13.5 acres, plus 2-50 acre irrigation fields that are planted with orchard grass. To accomplish all of this, the District received $4.7 million in Federal Loans and approximately $3.5 million in Grants. The loan is to be paid back in 30 years.
