It costs a homeowner now to clean out his septic system.$10 a month is not that much more. As it is now, raw sewage is running down Ledge Rock Road. What is the cost of your health?

It is going to benifit those that can afford it just like putting in the water meters! Grove community all had their own wells now they have to pay for it! Grove isn't that big! It will only help a few business's such as Krazy Korner gas station, Greg's auto body, the Massey's, Vermillions etc. etc. Thank god I live in the country!!! Because of the water meter's do u relize how much money they make it will be double when the sewer gets here! PPL struggle on their fixed income as it is. So what fix the problem on Ledge Rock road why should the citizen's have to pays??? I have lived here since 1969 and they have not had any problem's other than the one's that will actually benifit for a profit!!!

I live on Ledge Rock Rd. Raw sewage can't exist when there is no sewer.and I can guarantee it is not raw sewage It is a leak at the end of the water system. The water ends at a fire hydrant at the end of ledge Rock road on the right in Henson field straight across from the Ivy house. The leak was under the road and kept the pavement wet. It has also been known to flood Aunt Florine's yard.
The leak was repaired when they dug up the road to put in the sewer.
In the old days people would come from miles around in their wagons and fill their milk cans and buckets with the fresh clear mineral water from the spring in the grove, The town got its name from that spring but is was well known as a stopover as far back as the eighteen-thirties when people on their way to Texas would stop here to water their horses and take on water for the journey ahead.
It is a historical site, visited by people like Sam Houston and David Crockett and the Tennessee volunteers before the Indian removal.
Now somehow we have a sewer in the spring. This is not allowed in California and might not be legal if anybody bothered to institute an environmental impact report. I wonder how they got away with it.
Now we will have to change our town's name from Grovespring to Sewer spring.
