The Upper Reedy Creek Project is a multimillion dollar investment that will provide sanitary sewer service for current and future utility customers in the Upper Reedy Creek watershed area. Project plans currently include 10,000 feet of gravity sewer, 2,000 feet of pressurized sewer, and a new pumping station. This will extend service from the Garland Farm Estates Subdivision to the intersection of Boones Creek and Keefauver roads, accommodating current plans for development in the area as well as anticipated future needs.
