Thomson-McDuffie exploring adding new sewer main to support proposed subdivision
Bob and Irene Honeck view the map and trace the proposed sewer line through their property in the Germany Creek area.
A proposed sewer line in the Germany Creek area of McDuffie County for a proposed new subdivision on Whiteoak Road was the impetus for a recent informational meeting with parcel owners, engineers and city and county leaders.
The Thomson-McDuffie Water-Sewer Commission met with the parties who could be affected by the installation of an additional gravity sewer main, starting east of Harrison Road, continuing northeast past the eastern bypass to Interstate 20. The commission is considering sewer service for a proposed new subdivision just beyond the bypass on White Oak Road and for future construction along the south side of Cobbham Road. The proposed sewer system may also allow for attachment of existing properties east of Thomson.
