GONZALES - Ascension Parish government will apply for a $60 million loan through a fund overseen by the state Department of Environmental Quality to jump start plans to build a regional sewer system.

Parish officials say the loan would pay for a phase of sewage treatment systems in a heavily populated part of northeastern Ascension.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/16hJZVN ) the proposed sewer system would track Louisiana Highway 42, Louisiana Highway 73 and Airline Highway in the Prairieville and Dutchtown areas.

The plan also overlaps current or planned roadway widening projects on Louisiana 73 and Louisiana 42, for which the parish has already had to dedicate millions of dollars to install sewer lines.
