The Wymore Rural Water Project will begin construction soon. Landowners in the area have until Sept. 28th to become part of the project at a current hookup fee of $1,100. After Sept. 28, the hookup fee will increase to $5,000. 170 of the area residents have signed up for the project. The Lower Big Blue NRD is sponsoring the $3.2 million project and it has been approved for a grant and loan through USDA Rural Development. Construction is scheduled to be completed in April 2013. Call the Lower Big Blue NRD for sign-up forms or for more information at 402-228-3402. There is no guarantee that hookups can be made later to the system. System capacity will be kept to a minimum to reduce costs to the already existing users. The hookup fee will be much higher if there is capacity for more users.
