New sewer lines being built in Henderson County

The unincorporated area of Finley Addition, just outside the Henderson city limits, will soon be a part of Henderson in a way it hasn't been before.

The city received a one million dollar grant from the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority to build new sewer lines in the area along Highway 41-A.

Currently, homes and businesses are on their own individual system. Henderson County Engineer, Bill Hubiak, says its caused a lot of problems.

The city says the new system will correct sewage problems in the area. They say it will also help with new growth in the area.

Ron Harrelson, who works at D&L Crawlspace and Basement Waterproofing, a business in Finley Addition, says the new sewer system is needed.

"Its all about bettering this area, Henderson in general and that's what we're about. A good Christian company like us, we want this thing to happen, everybody will benefit from it," says Harrelson.

Phase One will put a main line from the city limits to the Canoe Creek bridge. Work will begin as soon as bids are expected.

The city hopes to finish Phase One by next Spring.

They need an addition $750,000 to complete the entire project. They're not sure when that will be.
