The Quarry Heights section of North Castle is finally getting sewers after years of paying for them in taxes.
"We've been here 39-40 years," says homeowner Joe Monticelli. "We were paying sewer district taxes to a couple of different districts without having any sewers. It was something that was needed and they knew it was needed. It just took time for the funding and everything."
Officials estimate it will cost almost $4 million to run sewer lines to 53 homes in total. Homeowners are expected to pay about $6,000. One reason for the high project price tag is that about 90 percent of the work will involve excavating rock in the area.
In recent years, some of the local septic systems have been failing, sometimes contaminating nearby drinking water wells.
