A new housing development could bring a sewage system to a rural part of Augusta County.
Staunton developer Frank Root is planning a 180-home development for a plot of land in Lyndhurst. Root has asked the Augusta County Service Authority to consider extending sewer service to the area.
Chairman Tracy Pyles says the service authority needs to decide if the extension is economically feasible. The project would require roughly three miles of sewer line.
Root declined comment to TV-3, saying he never comments on projects in progress.
Pyles says if the sewer line isn't extended, the homes would have to be built using septic systems. That could reduce the number of homes in the development by half, Pyles said.
The other homes already in the area are currently on septic systems.
