Does anyone know - or know where I can find out about - any plans to extend sanitary sewers in unincorporated areas of the county? Does that even happen?

I'm specifically looking at the area in Owen Township near intersection of 62 and Hibernia Rd. (Horseshoe Bend and Campbell Rd. run right there too. Marysville addresses.)

I doubt that anyone is running sewer lines out there.  Too expensive.  Unless there is a development that builds a "package plant", there just isn't a cost effective way to do that.

It has happened. Jeffersonville has sewers running as far as Hwy 403 in Charlestown township. But, Bruce is right. Too expensive to build for one or two small developments.

What generally happens is the developer runs them and then connects them to a city's system with the condition that the city can annex.  That's what happened with Covered Bridge, I believe.

Unfortunately, this isn't a development. A friend is dealing with three adjacent quasi-residential parcels. One is too small for septic. He is trying to decide whether to list, buy his siblings out, assemble, etc. From here and other sources, it appears tapping in won't be an option any time soon.

Thanks for the insights, guys.
