What it is
In 2013, the Village of Sunrise Beach awarded a contract to Don Maggi Construction for $1,940,226.95 to install its first phase of sewer in the small municipality. The project extends along Highway 5 from Spring Cove Rd. (formerly Lake Rd. 5-39) to the Hurricane Deck Bridge. Total cost is approximately $2.5 million with $1,820,475 - about 75 percent - coming from a Missouri Department of Natural Resources grant. A $750,000 low interest loan from the state revolving fund rounds out the financing package.
Construction of the sewer took a big step forward Tuesday with the installation of a wastewater treatment plant. Prefabricated in Tipton, Mo., large pieces of the plant were hauled in by semi-truckload and placed with a crane at the plant site by Dave's Appliance on Highway 5 starting around midmorning March 25. The extended-aeration treatment plant has a capacity of 50,000 gallons per day with potential for future expansion.
The sewer line to the new Woods Supermarket is dedicated to open first. The line is already in the ground and waiting on the plant to get up and running to connect. The first customers should be online in the next month or so. Construction crews now continue to put in line to the south of the plant toward the Hurricane Deck Bridge. They will also be working back in the northern section of the project to install line from Woods up to Cannon Smoked Saloon. Maggi, a company based in Rolla, had 270 days from Dec. 9 to complete the project.
