Hattiesburg officials meet with landowners

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Monday evening, Hattiesburg city officials are meeting with landowners interested in receiving and disposing the city's treated wastewater.

The city recently issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a land application site. Landowners are meeting with city engineers to submit their proposals for possible locations. Director of Engineering, Bert Kuyrkendall, says tonight's meeting is an opportunity for those interested to ask questions about  two possible methods to treat the city's waste water: land application and the mechanical treatment facility.

Kuyrkendall says the city's deadline to have one of the new treatments in place is May 2017, but the public will notice a change before that time.

"Of course, the most obvious impact is going to be rates. To be able to implement a very large system, a huge upgrade like this, is going to include some kind of rate increase in sewer," said Kuyrkendall.
