These dates for each road are when residents can expect to see Harger employees on their road.  While installing the main line, flags for reserve taps & grinder pumps will be set according to the Design Plan.  This allows time for the resident to approve or re-locate placement of reserve tap and/or grinder pump according to his desire.  Once the main line is in, a crew will begin installing reserve taps and grinder pumps.  Connection will happen when the Wastewater Treatment plant is completed and operational.

ALL LAKE CAREY RESIDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO CONNECT TO THE PUBLIC SEWER SYSTEM, PLEASE REFER TO THE MANDATORY CONNECTION ORDINANCE APPROVED & ADOPTED BY BOTH TOWNSHIPS 

An option to have a reserve tap line drilled to a prospective house location is available. This would be a contract between Harger Utility and the property owner, not the Sewer Authority.  Please talk directly with a Harger employee for this option.
