Utility Authority discusses projects

The Picayune Item - June 23, 2012, by Jeremy Pittari

Work to provide Hide-A-Way Lake with sewer service is nearing completion and several other projects are underway in other areas served by the Pearl River County Utility Authority.

Executive Director Jeff McClain said the board discussed a number of projects underway during Thursday’s board meeting.

Work to connect nearly 900 homes in the HAWL subdivision is nearing completion. McClain said so far about 500 customers are connected to the system, which includes the 350 homes on the east side of the lake whose owners signed up. He expects by the end of July that all of the about 500 homes along the west side of the lake whose owners signed up will be connected. He expects about 875 homes in the gated community to be connected to the waste water system when the project is complete.



Public Service Commission Awards PRCUA with sewer systems

The Picayune Item - June 23, 2012, by Jeremy Pittari

Round Rock, Wildwood and Hunter’s Trace sewer systems were awarded to the Pearl River County Utility Authority by the Public Service Commission on Friday.

A Public Service Commission hearing held Friday ended with the commission deciding to award those sewage systems to the Utility Authority.

The PSC held a public hearing in Picayune earlier in the month to allow residents of those three subdivisions to address any concerns they had with the Utility Authority possibly taking over the systems. Most of the concerns hedged around being billed for usage, instead of being billed on a flat rate under the systems’ current owners.
