JEFFERSONVILLE — Approval of increased capacity

The sewer board approved accepting 7,750 gallons-per-day of increased capacity to allow for the third phase of a subdivision development to connect to the city’s sewer system.

Kevin Taft, with Blankenbeker and Sons Inc., was on-hand to make the request for Premier Homes, the developer of the subdivision. Woods of Northaven off Snyder Drive in Jeffersonville is preparing to develop phase three of the subdivision, which will consist of 25 new lots, with about 12 new homes expected to be constructed per year.

The request to add the capacity to the sewer system the new homes will need in order to be constructed was unanimously approved.

Water concerns

Ann Graham said issues with a pumping station on Church Street has led to the flooding of her basement and asked the sewer board to help her resolve the problem.

A natural drainage next to the pumping station was redirected more than a year ago and when heavy rains occur, Graham said overflow is pumped onto her property.

She said it is not normally a problem that the water has been diverted onto her fields, but during especially heavy rains water comes into her basement.

The sewer board agreed to work with Graham to help find a solution.
