Some residents in the Woodland Park neighborhood could soon be cut off from Norfolk 's sewer system
NORFOLK, NE. (KTIV/US92) -
A neighborhood in a Siouxland city could be looking at having to fend for itself for a sewer system, unless an agreement can be found Monday night.
The Norfolk City Council will be discussing the future of providing sanitary sewer from the district located in the Woodland Park neighborhood. Woodland Park's water is managed by a Sanitary Improvement District board, which was informed by the city of Norfolk last April, that the city would be cutting it off from Norfolk's sewer system by June of 2016. At that time, Woodland Park would need to construct its own system.
City officials said that the issue was excess wastewater from Woodland Park was causing some flooding issues as well as a disputed sewer bill.
Last month, the city informed the SID via letter that it would be allowed to stay with the city's sewer system, provided it met certain conditions related to wastewater runoff. Both sides will be meeting Monday night to hash out a potential agreement, and the meeting agenda states that Monday night's offer from the city will be the final one it makes to Woodland Park.
