Port Ridglea East Residents
January 10, 2014
Acton Municipal Utility District (AMUD) has an ongoing commitment to help improve and protect Lake Granbury water quality in your area by providing first time sewer availability for your subdivision.
Although we have been able to utilize grant funds to assist us in this effort on two previous occasions, we were unsuccessful in obtaining grant funds this past year for the Phase 3 project. As you may be aware, grant funds have been used to assist low to moderate income qualifying households tie onto the sewer collection system.
We will continue to apply for grant funds in future Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding cycles to assist additional qualifying households.
At this time, AMUD is pleased to announce that funds have been budgeted to construct main wastewater collection lines and thereby provide sewer service capability for all remaining portions of Port Ridglea East (PRE). Construction is slated to occur this Summer. Once completed, anyone wishing to tie onto the system will need to apply for sewer service with AMUD, pay the appropriate connection fees and hire a licensed plumbing and electrical contractor to install the grinder pump system and abandon the existing septic holding tanks.
Once again, we will continue to pursue grant funding to assist low to moderate qualifying households in tying onto the collection system.
Follow this link to review the Hood County Order which describes the trigger criteria to be used by the Hood County Environmental Health Department in determining when residents using an existing septic system will be required to tie onto wastewater collection facilities. Anyone with questions regarding this County Order should contact the County Environmental Health Department at (817) 579-3288 for more information.
