☷ Sarpy County Nebraska - Wastewater Agency breaks ground on new sewer system 20 April 2022★★★ ( news )

   The Sarpy County and Cities Wastewater Agency today held a ceremonial groundbreaking for the Unified Southern Sarpy Wastewater System .
   The Wastewater Agency , formed in 2017 , is a multi - jurisdictional government body tasked with solving a regional issue: the lack of a unified sanitary sewer system in southern Sarpy County . The six agency members – Sarpy County and the cities of Bellevue , Papillion , La Vista , Gretna and Springfield – have worked together to create the Unified Southern Sarpy Wastewater System , a wastewater system that will help guide and encourage future development .  
   “This effort is a regional solution that no jurisdiction could tackle alone , ” said Don Kelly , chairman of both the Wastewater Agency and the Sarpy County Board of Commissioners . “It’s taken cooperation and partnership to get here , and I’m pleased to stand alongside our neighbors to create this system that will benefit not only Sarpy County and the Omaha metro area , but the State of Nebraska as a whole . ”  
   During the ceremony , Kelly recognized three individuals who played a key role in the helping the agency reach this “momentous day:” Former State Sen . Sue Crawford , Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy Director Jim Macy and Rep . Don Bacon .
   Crawford introduced and championed the legislation that allowed the county and cities to form the Wastewater Agency . Macy and his department awarded the agency a $69 . 8 million zero - interest loan to cover the initial construction costs . Bacon helped the agency secure $3 . 4 million in federal infrastructure funding .
   The Agency’s work to build the new wastewater system has included approving a Growth Management Plan that established the Agency’s jurisdictional area . This area is largely south of a natural ridgeline that cuts across the county from east to west . The Agency has also signed an agreement to partner with the City of Omaha for wastewater treatment service .  
   User rates and connection fees will be used to fund the system . The first phase of construction , which includes an interceptor sewer line to carry wastewater along Springfield Creek , will be paid for with the zero - interest loan from NDEE .  
   No property tax dollars will be used to pay for the system , according to the agency’s financial projections .
   In full , the system is expected to cost approximately $250 million and will be built in phases over the next 20 to 50 years .  
   The Unified Southern Sarpy Wastewater System is expected to open 97 , 000 new parcels for development . The county currently has 67 , 000 developed parcels . Additionally , development in the Agency’s jurisdiction is estimated to generate incremental tax revenue of:  
   $21 million annually in sales tax revenue for the Sarpy cities  
   $74 million annually in sales tax revenue for the state of Nebraska
   $31 million annually in property tax revenue for the Sarpy cities
   $29 million annually in property tax revenue for Sarpy County
