Money OK'd for Mille Lacs sewer
The U.S. House approved legislation that will provide $750,000 for a wastewater treatment project in the Garrison-Kathio-West Mille Lacs Lake Sanitary District, Rep. Jim Oberstar said recently.
The Minnesota Democrat said the funds could be used to install trunk mains, tie lines and sewer mains for the Mille Lacs Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant that would serve the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, Garrison and Kathio Township. He said it would replace the area's patchwork of unreliable septic tanks and the reservation's overloaded lagoon system.
