NEW SEWERLINE EXTENSION - DAMRON MAYO SUBDIVISION
The Sewerline extension going to the Damron Mayo Subdivision is complete, although cleanup and restoration still continues. Every house along the path of the new sewer line is required to receive a tap. There is no tap fee for a sewer tap on this line, however, you do need to go to the Little Sandy District Health Dept. at the Carter County Court House for a plumbing permit ($35). You will also be responsible for the cost of laying your sewer line from your house to the stub out of the tap. The New Sewer Line is now ready to be hooked up to.
As of November 1, 2012, you are now being charged for sewer on your utility bill. The Out-of-Town sewer rates are based on water consumption. The base rate is $17.05 for the first 1,000 gallons and $7.21 for every 1,000 gallons thereafter.
If you have any questions regarding the new sewerline extension, please call the Utility Office at 606-474-7569, M-F 8:00-4:00.
