THE PROPOSED PROJECT INVOLVES REPLACING OR ADDING TO EXISTING DRAINAGE TILES.

SOME RESIDENTS HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE WATER QUALITY OF BROWN’S LAKE BECAUSE OF ADDITIONAL SEDIMENT AND STORM WATER THAT WOULD BE DRAINING INTO THE LAKE.

THE PROJECT WOULD COST BETWEEN $400-THOUSAND TO $800-THOUSAND DOLLARS.
