Oconee County could spend up to $820,000 to build a tunnel under the Athens Perimeter, part of which is in Oconee County.
The tunnel is needed for a major new sewer line as the
county ramps up its wastewater treatment capacity, the county’s public
utilities director said in an agenda-setting meeting of the Oconee
County Commission on Tuesday.
“We’re thinking this tunnel is going to be necessary,” said Oconee County Public Utilities Director Wayne Haynie.
