It has been a long road, as we prepare this final stage of construction for commencement. Our goal is to break ground by mid to late summer 2022. The estimated duration of the project construction will be approximately 2 years. As we near the end of this Water & Sewer replacement project, it is important to note that of the $81 plus million dollars needed to complete this project, over $19 million dollars of this was from grants awarded to South Wayne County Water & Sewer Authority. An overall 24% reduction in our loan debt service, spanning all 4 stages. In this final stage alone, of the almost $14.9 million dollar price tag, $4.7 million dollars is a grant, reducing the loan to $10.2 million dollars. A cost reduction of 32%!

These numbers are unprecedented in our area. It would not take much research to reveal that in the scope of the national crisis on water and sewer infrastructure, the Hideout Community is in the best shape it can be in. In the past 10 years the Management and both the RS&W & South Wayne Boards have sought out every available resource, securing a future for this community.

The reality is, we have pledged and will continue to create a system that is sustainable, maintained and protected going forward.

So, we will ask once again, to be patient for a bit longer once this final stage of construction gets underway.
