Morton Water and Sewer System Improvements

Morton, Mississippi · Scott County

The City of Morton didn’t want to miss out on a chance for economic growth when a developer with big plans came calling in early 2008. The proposed new development included the construction of three acres of commercial property, multi-family housing, single-family housing and an assisted living facility along Highway 13. But the targeted areas were not connected to the city’s sanitary sewer system, and the developer faced a deadline for closing on the property. The city had to act fast, and did so by enlisting the support of WGK, Inc., to examine the targeted areas, design new sewer extensions, redesign some components of the existing sewer system and secure a CAP loan for the work.
