Elmore Gets New Sewage System

Elmore, AL (WSFA)-You wouldn't think something as simple as a new sewage system would make a community thrive, but that's just what's happening in Elmore County.

Today Elmore businessmen and lawmakers met for the announcement that new sewage system lines will soon be available to the town. The lines will be connected to the near-by treatment facility at Draper Correctional Facility.

Because septic tanks have been used in the area, new businesses couldn't build in the area due to state laws on proper sewage collection. But now that can happen.

The new system will create more than 400 new jobs for the area.
