Dedication of the New Hide-A-Way Lake Sewer Collection System


Pearl River County Utility Board members along with other local city, county, and state officials recently gathered to dedicate the new Hide-A-Way Lake Sewer Collection System. Tommy Breland, PRCUA Board President, along with Executive Director Jeff McClain, thanked everyone involved in bringing this project to completion.
“With the completion of this six million dollar project nearly 900 residents in this gated community are now connected to our sewer system via 18 miles of collection lines and a new state of the art sewer pump station”, said McClain.
“In addition to the collection system, the PRCUA was able to fund the decommissioning of over 250 septic tanks. These two achievements combined will greatly enhance the quality of life as well as the environment for the HAWL community”, said Breland.
All city, county, and state officials in attendance expressed their gratitude for the project and thanked the PRCUA for completing this much needed project. In addition, comments were made concerning the willingness of all to work together in a spirit of cooperation to build our infrastructure that will benefit the residents of Pearl River County.
