City pondering sewer’s future with study
Eudora's growth south of Kansas Highway 10 is pushing city leaders to look at the future of the city's sewer system.
The west sewer interceptor essentially runs from Eudora High School to just west of City Hall and carries waste from development south of K-10. Because the line passes through the proposed Grand Addition development, in the area to the south of Eudora Nursing Center, upgrades will need to take place to accommodate the growth of that neighborhood, said city engineer Brian Kingsley.
The city will have a study session to look at the capacity and future of the west interceptor sewer at 7 p.m. Feb. 2 at Eudora City Hall, 4 E. Seventh St.
During the discussion, engineers plan to present a timeline for improvements and discuss phasing and cost. Kingsley said no upgrades were needed immediately but rather were contingent upon future growth.
He said engineers with the city's on-call firm had developed several small projects the city could accomplish while developing an overarching plan for the sewer system.
