The Hull-area commercial sewer system is finally operational.
County industrial development authority (IDA) utility director Steve Shaw told authority members Feb. 21 that the veterans’ clinic on Hwy. 29 was connected to the sewer system that day. The Ingles grocery store and gas station have already been connected, Shaw said.
“We’re in the sewer business,” said IDA member Roger Tench.
The establishment of a commercial sewer system in the Hull area has been a goal of county leaders for many years. Three state highways funnel traffic in and out of Athens in the Hull area and leaders have long seen a potential for commercial growth in southern Madison County.
