Elmore Welcomes New Sewage Treatment Facility

You would not think something as simple as a new sewage system would make a community thrive, but that is just what is happening in Elmore County.

On Thursday, Elmore business leaders and lawmakers met for the announcement that new sewage system lines will soon be available to the area. 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.

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