Several years ago the County took over the sanitary sewer systems of other municipalities to effectuate more efficient service that is better protective of public health and the environment. The second phase of the Rush Creek Interceptor project commenced this summer is a direct result of this effort.

Elimination of the overflows will reduce bacteria contamination at nearby Woodlawn Beach.
