Robert B. Morton, sanitary .engineer with the State Department of Public Health, made the statement relative to a proposed $3,300,300 sanitary sewer system for Rosewood Heights, Cottage Hills, nd Forest Homes. "Septic tanks," he said, "design ed for large lots, estates, and arms, used in today's subdivisions vith small to tiny lots are im- jractical, because surveys show .he tanks are breeding places for nsects, rats and other rodents, and a collection of 'messy areas' n yards and drainage ditches." "There are large deposits of clay n this Southern Illinois area and )roper drainage from septic tanks s hampered because of the tightness of the soil. During the rainy seasons storm water collects, the anks fill up and overflow and 'ards and ditches take on a gray, dishwater-look from raw sewage in hem." 'Isn't Going Away' Aaron J. Martin, chairman of he trustees for the proposed sewer district told the 22 persons gathered, "the problem is here nd it isn't going away and it sn't going to get any cheaper if we wait." Martin said there are roblems of sewage overflowing n many of the areas of the three /illages involved and. septic tanks re being used. "We have had everal complaints of raw sewage lowing in drainage' ditches along ic streets in these areas," Marn told the group. "You have an advantage in doing all of the installation now because the cost will be declining," C. Vernon Fites, with Stifel, Nicolaus & Co. of St. Louis, fin- nacial advisors, told the residents, "ff you wait or do the sewer work peacemeal the cost will increase and might get prohibitive," Fites said. Oscar E. Grewis, with Russell & Axon of St. Louis, consulting engineers, explained the installation.! "There are 2,350 acres involved in ,18-inch pipe being installed closer the project and the sewer system jto the treatment plant to take care is designed to take care of this area, but minor additions to the district can be added later. It is estimated that in future years 18,000 people will be taking advantage of the sewer system and the size of SP' sr line installed and the sewav. treatment plant will help evx .yone," Grewis said. "About 80 per cent of the line will be 8-inch, with 10, 12, 15, and of the flow into it. Such an installation will take care of the area for more than 50 years." Grewis said. It was stated by Grewis that 6-inch line would have to be placed from houses to thp line located to the side of or in ths street. If the voters approve the dis trict, it will be about two years before the entire system is com- plete, Grewis said, "hut certain areas would be able to use the facilities prior to that time." Election Juno 29 Martin said June 29 has been set for the election date and polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Airline Drive in Rosewood Heights. Martin also said the trustees have applied for a federal grant to subsidize a portion of the cost, which would be about 10 per cent.
